The Joseph Saxton Gallery of Photography is one of the country’s newest premier photography galleries and unique in Northeast Ohio. A venue dedicated solely to photography is a rare find, let alone one of this scale.

The gallery space is the result of nearly a year’s worth of renovations to the century-old A.H. Wilson Building (1909) which is now perfectly suited for showcasing master photography.
The collection holds landmark works by more than 160 lensmen and spans the entire breadth and history of the photographic medium. From early dagguerotypes and tintypes to modern giclée prints; from Atget and Nadar to McCurry and Salgado, you will find it all here.

Founded in 1996, ArtWorks is a non-profit arts organization that empowers and inspires the creative community to transform our everyday environments through employment, apprenticeships, education, community partnerships, and civic engagement.
1996 marked the inaugural ArtWorks Summer Program, a job training and employment program in the arts for talented Greater Cincinnati area teenagers.
The ArtWorks Summer Program hires youth aged 14 - 21 to work with professional artists to make innovative public art to enrich the Greater Cincinnati community.
Since 1996, ArtWorks has employed over 2,500 area youth and 500 professional artists to create over 300 public works of art throughout Greater Cincinnati.
Hired teenagers, on average, come from as many as three states, 60 zip codes, 67 schools, and 75 neighborhoods. Ethnic makeup on average is 37% African American, 6% Other, 4% Asian, 1% Latino and 52% Caucasian. (Each program year the demographics shift slightly, but remain fairly consistent with the above composition.)
Notable ArtWorks public art projects include The Outdoor Museum, Mirror Lake at Eden Park, Queen City Art Racks, Scoop City Art and, of course, The Big Pig Gig.
3711 Clifton Avenue
Cincinnati, Ohio - OH45220
The Clifton Cultural Arts Center was first imagined in 2004 after a series of community engagement meetings addressed the fate of two key historic buildings – the 1906 Clifton School and the adjacent McDonald Estate Carriage House – both scheduled to fall into disuse in 2008 as a result of imminent initiatives included in the Cincinnati Public Schools Master Plan.
A seed was sown – and the CCAC is the outgrowth of that idea: that participation in cultural and artistic activities contributes to more cohesive communities and more successful, more inspired children and adults.
Today, a proactive, dedicated group of citizens have nurtured the potential of that ideal to create a rare and remarkable opportunity: A multi-venue, truly regional Cultural Arts Center encompassing – and preserving – over 57,000 square feet of historically significant space in an incomparable urban campus.

If one is to be truly alive he or she must have passion - passion for life, for love, for family, for work, for interesting experiences, and for fine things. Passion runs deep through one's veins and soul as well as expresses itself intensely in its splendor. Our true passion is Art. Art tells a story - a story of the artist and his or her vision, the story of the work itself, and how it makes the collectors see and feel in their own eyes and memory when they look at it. Art transcends time, heritage, religion, race, composition, and feeling. It lives, breathes, and captures the essence of pure color, texture, life, objects, people, and moments. We will strive as a Gallery to bring you the greatest Old and Modern Masters the world has known, as well as some of the finest newcomers that are just beginning to make their true mark on the Art world. We promise to listen to you - your tastes, your feelings, your philosophies, your goals and your needs. We will provide you with world-class service and great Art. We hope each time you acquire a work from us, that we have added to your joy and passion for life, and that you cannot wait to return and add to your collection. We further promise to make you proud of our civic achievements through our integrity, community service, and philanthropic efforts.

In 1989 the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries became a collecting institution and adopted a collecting policy focused on works of art created post-1967 and Western in origin. This year was selected not only because Wright State University was founded in 1967, but it also marks a period of political and artistic turmoil, the aftermath of which caused significant changes in contemporary art. With the help of an NEA Purchase Plan grant and local private donors, the Galleries have grown an impressive contemporary collection of over 450 pieces that include names such as Jim Dine, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman, Jeff Koons, Chuck Close, and Lucien Freud. In 2008 the Robert & Elaine Stein Galleries received a gift of over 100 Polaroids and 50 gelatin silver prints from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts as part of its Andy Warhol Photographic Legacy Program. The program gave 28,543 photos to 183 colleges and universities around the country. This gift provides the Dayton area public with unprecedented access to the unique photographic works of Andy Warhol.
