Community Arts Centers Day 2012 – An Annual Celebration of Art in the Community!

Community Arts Centers Day, an annual celebration of community arts centers throughout the Greater Cincinnati region, returns for a third year on August 11th and 12th. This year, seven community arts centers and ArtsWave are partnering once again to bring people out and bring them together through the arts.
On Saturday, August 11 and Sunday, August 12, 2012, the participating organizations will host an Open House featuring participants of all ages celebrating their communities with creative costumes, masks, banners, musical instruments, and more followed by FREE ice cream socials made possible by United Dairy Farmers.
