April Charity of the Month: Visionaries and Voices

Visionaries and Voices

The concept for Visionaries + Voices emerged in 2001 when Keith Banner and Bill Ross curated an exhibition in Base Gallery for artists Paul Rowland, Richard Brown, Antonio Adams, and Raymond Thunder-Sky. Bill and Keith both worked for county boards serving individuals with disabilities and had met these artists in the course of their work. After that initial exhibition, more opportunities arose to organize shows and to present the work of artists with disabilities. 

V+V now serves over 150 artists each week and presents 5 exhibitions per year in our Northside Gallery along with a growing number of exhibitions in wide variety of venues throughout the region and beyond. In 2004, Raymond Thunder-Sky passed away. His legacy is commemorated on the exterior wall of V+V’s Northside Studio in a mural designed by his friend Antonio Adams (this mural was completed and dedicated by ArtWorks in 2009). V+V has also developed a groundbreaking education program that provides artists who attend the studio opportunities to present their work and teach in community and classroom settings. The Teaching Artist Program (T.A.P.) now reaches over 6,000 students each year. 

What began with a simple and ingenuous vision to create a space for artists with disabilities, has become the home for hundreds of artists to find their voice within the cultural landscape of Cincinnati.

To help with the vision, Frame USA will be donating to Visionaries and Voices in appreciation for your online order for the month of April.
