    posted by Alecia Kintner On May 12, 2015
    The arts have been in the news a lot over the past two weeks.

Within the space of twelve days, Cincinnati has done something that other cities, large or small or in between, can only envy. We’ve shown our unique capacity for collaborative action around things that we value—namely, a thriving, innovative, and inclusive arts scene.
