Rock Paper Scissorsis an art supply and local-music record store coming to Over-The-Rhine in September.
Local artists Adam Petersen and Lindsay Nehls from The Marburg Collective have teamed up with Alisha Budkie of Smartfish Studio & Sustainable Supply to create a shop in the heart of the community (1301 Main Street) that will offer a selection of art supplies, designed to suit the needs of art students, local small businesses, and working and commercial artists. They will also devote a large section of the store to locally-made materials and tools, including handmade charcoals, inks, books, and bags.
Downtown Cincinnati’s Lloyd Library and Museum is currently featuring Wounded Home, an art and book exhibit commemorating the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. Jane Durrell learns about how this exhibit was assembled and what visitors can expect to find in a conversation with the library’s Anna Heran and the exhibit’s guest curator, Kate Kern.
