Cincinnati Art Club’s commitment is to support cultural activities that help make this a thriving, vibrant and inclusive region. Visual art is an important part of this region’s creative economy, having a ripple effect across the region and generating over $6 billion annually. We are working to help spread recognition of Cincinnati as a leading national center for visual art.

Here’s where the Cincinnati Art Club members interact in the region–
