The Contemporary Arts
Center turns 75 this year and she’s looking as good as ever! Celebrate the
CAC’s long history of pushing Cincinnati along the cutting edge with an epic
birthday bash tonight. The festivities start at the CAC’s former location in
the Mercantile Center with dinner and silent and live auctions from 6-9 p.m. (email

list). More food and drink, dancing and art awaits at the CAC with a Diamonds +
Debauchery after-party from 9 p.m.-1 a.m. CityBeat’s

by Chef Brian Duffy (of Bar Rescue fame).
Check out the updated digs tonight at Pavilion’s re-launch party from 8 p.m.-2 a.m.
Head down to Washington
Park for an OTR-rific Saturday with the first City Flea of the season and the
eighth annual OTR 5K. City Flea, Cincy’s local curated urban flea market, embarks on its fourth season this
weekend, offering handcrafted goods, art, antiques, local grub and more fun
goodies from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. The OTR 5K
also kicks off at 10 a.m., with festivities following in the park.
Northside is a hub for
creativity, so it’s fitting that the Cincinnati Arts Association is sponsoring
a self-guided tour of Hamilton Avenue artist studios from 2-5 p.m. this Sunday.
North By Northside
features studio tours, pop-up exhibitions and an overall celebration of art in
the eclectic neighborhood. Start at Hoffner Lodge (4120 Hamilton Ave.), where
tickets can be purchased beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday, then make your way through
several artist studios and creative spaces. Head back to the lodge
from 5-7 p.m. for an after-party including food, drinks and music. Tickets are
$35; the event benefits non-profit gallery Weston Art Gallery.

Digital World presents James Duesing and
three other artists whose work originates on a monitor via 3-D imaging
