At LPK, we have a zeal for creative thinking and positive change. Every day we use our talents, time and energy to creatively solve problems and change outcomes. That’s what we do. So when we see an innovative, passionate spark in others as they strive for positive change in the world, we want to celebrate it… and support it.
This summer, LPK is sponsoring the new Cincinnati Art Museum exhibit: DRAW, Here, There and Everywhere, running through September 4, 2011. The exhibit is focused on community-based need – specifically hunger – and is a first of its kind at the Museum. The exhibit hopes to educate and inspire action and reflection using the power of art to shed light on hunger-related issues, the causal effect of a commitment to fight hunger, and the importance of Cincinnati’s role in the world community.
In the coming weeks, you’ll see opportunities to engage in the concept behind DRAW. In the meantime, LPK encourages you to support this important cause and attend the free exhibit and its associated programs. See below for a list of event dates, times and speakers.
DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere Free Choice Programming
Daily through August 28, 11am-5pm
DRAW–part gallery, part performance space, part lounge, and this summer, a place to make a difference. Explore the exhibition DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere during your next visit to the Cincinnati Art Museum and experience, create and interact with the permanent collection in a new way. Educate yourself on world hunger issues, draw a picture to be sent to a child in need, join the conversation at our “Let’s Talk About Hunger” table, and commit to doing something that will help your community. DRAW: Here, There and Everywhere is more than an exhibition, it is a call to action.
