Cincinnati officials have announced that East Price Hill and Walnut Hills have been selected for this year’s Neighborhood Enhancement Program.
The two areas were selected based on a number of factors. Those include: building code violations, vacant buildings, disorder and drug calls for police service and drug arrests, as well as graffiti, junk cars, litter and weeds.
Jason Franz, artist, curator, director and founder of Walnut Hill’s Manifest Gallery, joins our Jane Durrell for a preview of their upcoming 10th anniversary season and to talk about the gallery’s mission and recently expanded exhibit space.
The arts scene on Woodburn Ave. in Walnut Hills continues to grow, and new boutiques and galleries are opening regularly. The next Walk on Woodburn is scheduled for July 12, and local artist Annie Bollinghas started The Gallery Project to introduce young people to a wide variety of art forms. Jane Durrell welcomes in Annie Bolling to talk about her project and the resurgence of Woodburn Ave.
For the first time in its existence, Cincinnati’s Manifest Gallery has engaged an artist-in residence. Painter Tyler Wilkinson has been working with the gallery for some time, so he joins our Jane Durrell in the studio to discuss the experience so far, the type of work he’s been doing, and what he hopes to accomplish before his residency is completed.
