Art on the Streets Cincinnati is a new local initiative to encourage performance and art in public spaces across the city. The group’s initial efforts will unleash dancers, singers, painters, musicians and other artists to parks and sidewalks during the World Choir Games (July 4-14) to welcome visitors (up to 90,000 of ‘em) and get locals in the arty spirit. Art on the Streets hopes to continue this public creative effort long after the Games, as well. Discover more about the group (and public performance rules) tonight at Know Theater. An informational and planning meeting is set to begin at 7:30 p.m., so grab a drink at Know’s bar and learn how you can participate in making Cincinnati and even more lively arts scene. Email [email protected] to RSVP.
