Artist in Nature - Eco Conscious Artmaking Opening
Join us for the Contemporary Arts Center’s second annual Artist-in-Nature Exhibition in partnership with Keep Cincinnati Beautiful, hosted by MadTree Brewing.
Art and science collide through this two-week exhibition. Nine local artists spent the summer learning about low-impact art making and were tasked with creating an original piece that reflected their understanding of environmental issues and solutions in the Queen City. This year’s theme is Origins, where artists were conscious about the materials used in their pieces including using native, invasive, old, new, natural, synthetic, recycled, and upcycled materials.
The exhibition kicks off July 22nd with a fun community celebration. Bring the whole family to MadTree Brewing from 6-8pm to join in art-making activities alongside CAC art educators, learn more about local environmental efforts from organizations like KCB, and meet the artists from the program whose work will be on display throughout the brewery. A silent auction will be held throughout the two week exhibition for each piece created by our artists, with proceeds going towards continuing this experience for local artists in the future.
