The Art Academy of Cincinnati Celebrates its 150th Anniversary With A Free Block Party

The Art Academy of Cincinnati (AAC) is a community of radiant, radical, and forward-thinking artists and designers who have helped mold Cincinnati’s landscape since the school’s founding in 1869. To celebrate its 150th Anniversary, the Art Academy is throwing a block party on Friday, May 3, from 6—11 pm, in its neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine. They've got a stacked lineup of Diane Coffee (Bloomington), Ronin Halloway, Knotts, PHYSCO, and Azizia Love of Triiibe.

Attendees will also enjoy Cincinnati’s first modular art pod exhibit thanks to the support of a Catalyzing Impact Grant from ArtsWave. 30 local artists, organizations, students and alumni will create 8’x9’ art pod structures that will be strung together to create an interactive exhibit. The exhibit will be housed within 8,000 sq. ft. of the college’s campus. Also activating the space will be DJ Coco, a fashion show by Lindsey Whittle and an AMSR performance by Crystal Tubes.

Food & Drinks will be provided by: Ché Red Sesame Korean BBQ 3 Points Urban Brewery
