ArtsWave Event


From 7 to 10 p.m. on January 30, visit popular arts and culture venues to see specially designed luminaria that will mark a path to their entrances. A fleet of drones will be sent to capture aerial video of the locations, and the arts sector will be communicating via social media using the hashtag #ArtsUnite.

Arts organizations that receive project and operating support through the ArtsWave Campaign are excited to be part of a collective 2020 kick off. Over the past 70 years, ArtsWave has raised and invested $340 million for the arts throughout the Cincinnati region, which includes 15 counties in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The ArtsWave Campaign provides indispensable funding for a portion of operating budgets for 44 arts organizations as well as many more project grants that bring the community together through the arts. In total, ArtsWave funding benefits more than 100 projects and organizations every year.

Cincinnati Art Museum’s Louis and Louise Dieterle Nippert Director Cameron Kitchin, explains the annual campaign’s importance: “Community investment made by ArtsWave is critically important to the Art Museum’s impact and reach on arts education and the vitality of our city — this funding is vital.”

Brendon Cull, Chief Operating Officer of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber, the organization that produced BLINK®notes, “Without ArtsWave, BLINK wouldn’t have been able to put Cincinnati on the map, lighting up our region for our residents and the world to see.”

Jill McGruder, Chief Marketing Officer of Western & Southern and the 2020 ArtsWave Campaign Chair, adds, “All together, this campaign will enable nearly half a million arts experiences for youth and continue to build momentum for a prosperous, inclusive future for all our region’s residents. Join us as we illuminate great things this year.”
