About Our Campaign
We are excited share ArtWorks is embarking on its next transformative step to build a creative art campus in Walnut Hills!
This campus will include multiple art studios to teach and employ underserved youth in a year-round social enterprise model with commissioned projects from local clients, a youth gallery exhibiting art created by ArtWorks youth, and a community space that will support local emerging artists and community events and provide earned income to support sustainability.
The expanded service offerings will collaborate regionally with schools and businesses to frame a comprehensive path for youth to work with ArtWorks at an early age that guide them to future employment with career and job readiness skills. This facility will also support community engagement and participation in region wide public art planning and collaboration.
Our Capital Campaign provides ArtWorks with the opportunity to preserve and activate a historic building while designing a creative space with amenities to support job creation for youth and artists. This exciting Creative Campus will support the studios and the creation of many more year-round jobs in the arts, building a future workforce that is diverse, creative and entrepreneurial and a critical pipeline for our local creative economy!
Thank you for your interest and support in our Capital Campaign. It is our honor to share it with you!
