All institutions that once took their audiences for granted are struggling to find their place in a world of constantly new breakthroughs in digital and electronic options, and the arts are no exception. Diane Ragsdale, of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, will discuss “Sharing Our Art in a Changing Community” at 4:30 p.m. May 6 for this year's Joan Cochran (Rieveschl) Lecture: Creative Visionaries, presented by University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music and the Fine Arts Fund.
It occurs at the UC’s Main Street Cinema. Her talk will focus on how the arts can “survive culture change” by building a strong community. After her lecture, there will be a panel discussion with Evans Mirageas, Cincinnati Opera's artistic director, and Pete Blackshaw, executive vice president of Nielsen Online. Free.
