Serendipity and Street Art with Margy Waller

Serendipity abounds with Cincinnati's Art on the Streets
facebook.com/ArtsCincy

I'm really quite jealous of Margy Waller's job title which is Serendipity Director at Art on the Streets. Waller is a long-time arts advocate for Cincinnati, and though the idea of 'directing serendipity' seems like an oxymoron, she handles the task quite skillfully.

Art on the Streets brings together visual artists as well as dancers, street musicians and other like-minded creative people to produce magnificent, spontaneous bursts of creativity and engagement in the city.

xChange Cincinnati

Local poet Hannah Ramlo from xChange Cincinnati

xChange Cincinnati is an event that celebrates local artists, activists and entrepreneurs who use their creativity as a vehicle for social change.  The one-night-only event is presented by Theatre for The Free People and is the culmination of the work that was created in the Artist as Activist/Cincinnati xChange Program at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center.

According to local poet Hannah Ramlo, who is curating the event, the program examines the artist as an environmental, ethical, humanistic and social activist.  The mission is to initiate conversations about the impact of art on society, and to raise awareness of the use of art as a tool for liberation.

The Vains: It's Good to Be Back

The Vains: Adam Stafford (Lead Vocals, Guitar) Kris Ulrich (Drums) Jake Borgemenke (Bass) Alex Simmons (Lead Guitar, Vocals)

It's Good to Be Back, the first full-length release from Cincinnati's The Vains, is an album created by struggle, tempered by compromise and forged in defiance.

Fans of Social Distortion, Bad Religion or even The Gaslight Anthem should stop what they're doing and go grab a copy of It's Good to Be Back, not only to help support the local music scene, but simply because it is a great album performed by a damn fine band.
