Summer Walk In A Beautiful Place

Guest blogger: Joyce Monger, Consultant, Art Services

Earlier this summer, we hosted a neighborhood tour of Over the Rhine -- a cool introduction to our beautiful new neighborhood.

This tour was part of our series of excursions to get people together with our arts community. The evening kicked off at our Jackson and Central Parkway office with guitarist Gregory Harper. Summer was in the air: temperatures around 90°, doors wide open, and people strolling down the streets. 

Our neighborhood exploration began with a guided walking tour of the ArtWorks' murals that punctuate Central Parkway, led by Tamara Harkavy, Director, and student mural painter Aaron Siska. Our pace was just right for getting a good view of all these amazing community accomplishments!  

Dan Korman, proprietor of Park + Vine, welcomed us at his threshold and shared his passion with our group of 40 when he gave an animated tour of the unique mixture of shops, arts, and eats that comprise this thriving corridor. 

Then, we went down the block to our final stop at Ensemble Theatre, where -- with the backdrop of a Fringe Festival performance set -- Lynn Meyers, Producing Artistic Director, shared some neighborhood history and refreshing air conditioning!

And the neighborhood explorations will continue! Yeh! Check back in August for more details on these events or sign up here for our email list to get occasional updates about fun things like this!
