Hamilton, OH – Pyramid Hill announces partnerships with the Contemporary Arts Center, University of Cincinnati, and Fretboard Brewing Company for this year’s Art & Earth Day.
Pyramid Hill is scaling up their offerings for this year’s Art & Earth Day on Saturday, April 24th. A joint celebration of Arbor Day, Earth Day and International Sculpture Day, this event includes a wide range of programming throughout the day including the Contemporary Arts Center’s Spring Family Festival. From 12PM – 3PM, guests are invited to Pyramid Hill’s Grand Pavilion to attend this special event that brings art and creativity outside of the gallery setting.
This portion of Art & Earth Day features works by local artists and embraces creative art-making for guests of all ages.
“This year, we are very pleased to be hosting the Contemporary Art Center’s Spring Family Festival as part of our Art and Earth Day celebrations,” says Pyramid Hill Interim Director, Dr. Lee Sanders. “Pyramid Hill provides an excellent backdrop for the CAC’s family friendly activities. We love the opportunity to collaborate with another art organization as it enriches the offerings of both institutions!”
Attendees of the event are invited to participate in the UC artist walk which features outdoor sculpture projects from students at the University of Cincinnati. A continuing tradition, this exhibition of student work offers emerging artists the opportunity to not only show at a reputable venue but also to engage with the public by speaking about the motivations behind the creation of the work on display as well as insights into how the work was made.
Guests can also enjoy a happy hour from 12PM – 3PM in the Fretboard Beer Garden. As a sponsor of the event, Jim Klosterman, owner of Fretboard Brewing Company stated, “Fretboard Brewing Company was founded by musicians, so we understand the importance of supporting the arts. We are truly a prideful part of the arts community and have had the opportunity to partner with several local arts organizations including Artswave, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra, the Bootsy Collins foundation and most recently, Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum."
To maintain a safe, socially-distanced event for our community, Pyramid Hill will be implementing a “one in, one out” policy on cars entering the park once the event reaches maximum capacity. Masks will be required in all indoor facilities including the Visitor Center and the Ancient Sculpture Museum.
