The Kennedy Heights Arts Center, one of the best and most ambitious in the region, takes a great leap forward this weekend when it opens its new 10,500-square-foot annex in a portion of an old Kroger grocery store.

The overall site has been christened the Kennedy Heights Cultural Campus because the building also holds the Kennedy Heights Montessori School in addition to the arts center’s Lindner Annex.

“This expansion will allow us not only to expand our programs to include digital art forms, but also to have a big open space for different kinds of performing arts and to host performances and concerts,” said Ellen Muse-Lindeman, the arts center’s executive director, during a recent tour of the addition. (The annex will also be home to the workshop/studio of the Ohio Valley Woodturners Guild, as well as to studios for individual artists, and there will be a small gallery.)

The Raise the Heights art parade and festival takes place 11 a.m-5 p.m. Saturday.
