Best Cornucopia of Free Arts Offerings: Chase Public

Best Cornucopia of Free Arts Offerings

No other Cincinnati entity presents a similar array of imaginative programming as Northside’s Chase Public, a feat made doubly impressive by the fact that each program happens outside any regular funding and is free. The group features poetry readings, some where the only rule is that no original work is allowed; the popular “Response Project,” wherein artists give their interpretations of a chosen work; independent film screenings; intimate concerts; and workshops on important cultural issues such as women’s safety in contemporary social culture — and this is only a portion of what is regularly on offer as Chase Public’s executive director, Scott Holzman, continues to expand and perfect his singular vision of what an ad-free, collaborative art space can be.Chase Public, 1569 Chase Ave., Suite 4, Northside, chasepublic.com.
