Kennedy Heights History Book Still Available!
Be a part of history! As a part of last year's celebration of Kennedy Heights' 100th anniversary of being a city neighborhood, University of Cincinnati Professor Casey-Leininger and his history classes put together a special public history publication for our neighborhood. Their publication focused on the origins and evolution of the African-American community in Kennedy Heights, and the efforts to preserve racial integration in the neighborhood over the last 50+ years. The students’ research sources include archival collections, oral history interviews, and photographs borrowed from Kennedy Heights residents.

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.
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, Thank you in advance for your support this year!

East Meets West
Opening Reception
Saturday, Jan. 17, 6 to 8pm

A desire to compare, contrast and ultimately come to an understanding of the similarities and differences between Eastern and Western culture fuels Frank Satogata’s paintings and calligraphic works.

His solo exhibition, East Meets West, brings together works with spontaneous brush strokes found in the Japanese Calligraphy of his ancestry, works featuring subjective mark making inspired by the Western art movement of Abstract Expressionism and works that fuse both approaches. Satogata's work in the KHAC galleries will be arranged to guide viewers through segments focusing on Eastern, Western and finally a Fusion of both.

All three categories share an emphasis on the juxtaposition of vibrant layers of color in varying densities as well as an emphasis on the physical process the artist uses to create the work. Viewers are encouraged to consider what tools the artist uses to add or take away paint/pigment as well as the unique gesture or movement of the body that each brush stroke requires.

Viewers are invited to engage in further exploration of this rich cultural fusion during two calligraphic performances during the run of the exhibition. Satogata will demonstrate the art of big brush Japanese Calligraphy during the opening reception on January 17 from 6-8 pm. In addition, during a special presentation on February 7 at 2 pm, the artist will create calligraphy in performance with a Japanese Taiko group of drummers and talk about his work.
