Art on the Streets Cincinnati is a new local initiative to encourage performance and art in public spaces
across the city. The group’s initial efforts will unleash dancers, singers,
painters, musicians and other artists to parks and sidewalks during the World Choir
Games (July 4-14) to welcome visitors (up to 90,000 of ‘em) and get locals in
the arty spirit. Art on the Streets hopes to continue this public creative
effort long after the Games, as well. Discover more about the group (and public
performance rules) tonight at Know Theater. An informational and planning
meeting is set to begin at 7:30 p.m., so grab a drink at Know’s bar and learn
how you can participate in making Cincinnati and even more lively arts scene.
Email ArtsCincy@gmail.com to RSVP.

one-of-a-kind family. Screenings are from 1-3 p.m. and 7-9 p.m. Tickets are $10
($8 for JCC members).
