Step into the former Church of the Assumption to celebrate submissions to Place from Space: A design competition to turn vacant spaces into community places.
While the musicians from the Kentucky Struts fill the former church with sound you have an exciting opportunity to experience a unique former Catholic Church accompanied by a food truck and beer by Listermann Brewing Company.
The church’s cornerstone was laid in 1884. The archdiocese no longer owns the church; it’s used by an artist whose work will also be on display. The artist has stabilized the Church, and it’s vaulted ceilings and unique eclectic detail will beg for your attention. See what reinhabiting Cincinnati’s great spaces is all about when you celebrate Place from Space.
Round 1 proposals will be exhibited and you have the chance to pick a Finalist for East Walnut Hills, Walnut Hills; East, West or Lower Hill, or Over-the-Rhine. The Grand-Prize-Winner will be built in the spring of 2014.
The former Church of the Assumption is located at 2622 Gilbert Ave, Walnut Hills. There is plenty of on-street parking(free after 6).
