PROGRESSIVE DINNER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

The Progressive Dinner is on Saturday, September 27, and is a fun time to meet your Kennedy Heights neighbors and friends. After enjoying appetizers at the Kennedy Heights Arts Center, you will share a meal in the home of a neighbor, and then end the evening with dessert and a silent auction at Kennedy Heights Presbyterian Church. Additional details will be in the next newsletter. We need volunteers to plan and coordinate the dinner, host a meal in their home, donate dessert, and plan the silent auction. If you can help, please contact Christine Schumacher at christine@kennedyheights.org or call 513-351-8785.

Kennedy Heights board member and Communications Committee Chair, Christine Schumacher has been collecting stories from long time neighborhood residents who tell of their experience of living in our wonderful neighborhood. Kennedy Heights Elder Series!
BECOME A “FRIEND OF KENNEDY HEIGHTS”!
Over the years the Kennedy Heights Community Council has hosted events like litter clean-ups, movies in the park, pool days, a Sap Run, and the Progressive Dinner. We have supported events like the Juneteenth Festival, District A (an Arts Collaborative), and a bi-monthly newsletter that is sent to every home. Last year when the City of Cincinnati cut our Neighborhood Support Program (NSP) budget, we had to scale back significantly on our planned events. The 2014 Board of Trustees made a commitment to do all we can to sustain and grow our community-building activities. We continue to seek out grant opportunities, and thank volunteer fundraisers like Bob Kamp, a resident who continues to amaze with his efforts to collect donations. This year we have a new way to raise money for the support of our neighborhood activities, and that is to offer each of our community stakeholders the opportunity to become a “Friend of Kennedy Heights”. All donations will supplement our budget, and allow us to sponsor even more services to the neighborhood. We encourage you to become a “Friend of Kennedy Heights” for 2014! Your donation is tax-deductible and you have the opportunity to be recognized as a “Friend” in a future newsletter. To make a donation, complete and mail the form in the March/April newsletter or go to the KHCC website, www.kennedyheights.org. Thank you in advance for your support this year!

K.Heights Arts Center News

CS ARTS
July 19 – Aug 16, 2014

A diverse exhibition featuring work by the nine selected artists for the inaugural season of C•S•Arts Cincinnati. Participating artists include: David Armacost, Brian Burt, Susan Byrnes, Cole Carothers, Tyler Hamilton, Kristy Kemper, Pam Kravetz, Brett Schieszer, and Kara Sheldon.

Cincinnati's Community Supported Arts is a volunteer-run organization dedicated to connecting new, emerging and established artists with art lovers across the city. As a community we understand (and are proof!) that the arts transform a city.

C•S•Arts Cincinnati started in the fall of 2013 and is modeled after the established community-supported arts program created by Springboard for the Arts in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2009. Community-supported arts programming is rooted in the decades-long tradition of community-supported agriculture programs. Kennedy Heights Arts Center is pleased to serve as fiscal agent and partner for CSArts Cincinnati.

Artists were selected by a panel of distinguished jurists including: Maureen Bloomfield, Editor in Chief, The Artist’s Magazine; Dennis Harrington, Director, Weston Art Gallery; Kim Krause, Associate Dean/Chief Academic Officer, Art Academy of Cincinnati; and Steven Matijcio, Curator, Contemporary Arts Center.

The CSArts Cincinnati exhibition runs through August 16, 2014. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday from 10am to 5pm and Saturday from 11am to 4pm.
