Rejoice!: A Retrospective of Avtar Gill, the Cincinnati Hat-Man

Jessica Baltzersen
Opening Reception, 6-10 p.m., Friday April 25

Avtar Gill, known by many downtowners as The Hat Man, passed away early 2013, but he will always be remembered as a Cincinnati folk hero for the sign-emblazoned hats he wore while walking all across the city and for his dedication to maintaining a strong, cultural voice and presence throughout his life.

The exhibit will feature photographs, video, testimonials, stories, and actual hats and signs The Hat-Man left behind. There will also be “Avtar Gill Hat-Making Kits” on hand, for those interested in paying tribute by making a Cincinnati-Hatman hat.

The exhibit continues April 25-June 13

Gallery Hours: 6-8 p.m., Saturday; 1-4 p.m., Sunday; or by appointment.
