What's ArtsWave?

ArtsWave is the engine for Greater Cincinnati’s arts. 

Through gifts from tens of thousands of individuals and companies each year, ArtsWave funds and supports more than organizations and artists each year that create thousands of concerts, shows, exhibitions, school-based arts, public art, festivals and events like BLINK®. With funding, services, and advocacy, ArtsWave fuels a more vibrant regional economy and connected community through the arts. 

The arts play an essential role in the success of our region. They attract national acclaim and drive tourism. They make our region a more attractive place to live and work. They bring vitality to our neighborhoods. They foster creativity and learning in our future leaders. They even help bring us together as a community across cultural divides. 

Those impacts are made possible by your gift to ArtsWave, the nation’s first and largest community campaign for the arts and the Cincinnati region's arts council. 

Funding Arts. Fueling Community.
