CALL TO ARTISTS
Group Exhibition at Clifton Cultural Arts Center as part of Regional FotoFocus Biennial
Exhibition Dates: September 18 – October 24, 2020
Location: CCAC@Short Vine, 2728 Short Vine Street, Cincinnati, OH 45219
The “third place,” a term coined by sociologist Ray Oldenburg, refers to places where people spend time between home (“first” place) and work (“second” place). These locations are essential for building relationships, exchanging ideas, reducing loneliness and expanding horizons. The Clifton Cultural Arts Center is such a third place, providing physical spaces and opportunities to connect through visual and performing arts, as well as arts education opportunities. In a lens-based interpretation of third place, and in response to the FotoFocus biennial theme of “Light &”, the exhibit asks artists and viewers to consider both the literal – using and manipulating light through the use of photography, and the figurative – how third places enlighten us and encourage us to lighten up.
