If you're interested in how empowering the arts can be, it's worth spending Saturday downtown attending the 2009 Eyes Open Festival, which features artists, musicians and films that celebrate black LGBT contributions to the arts in our community. It's at the Aronoff Center for the Arts’ Fifth Third Bank Theater, at the corner of Seventh and Sycamore streets. Starting with a “Meet and Greet” at 2 p.m. and going straight through until 11 p.m., the day is packed with a lineup that looks all over for quality and inspiring art. The best part is that the whole day’s events are included in the $15 ticket. Then join the official after party at Below Zero Lounge, 1122 Walnut St., Over-the-Rhine. from 11 p.m.-2 a.m. ($10 with ticket stub and $15 without).
