'Floodwall' and Everyone's Famous! Blogger Bash

Here are some photos from a couple of recent events I attended.

The first is a gala for the Floodwall exhibit at the Clifton Cultural Arts Center (CCAC).

The Katrina memorial by artist Jana Napoli featured a 96-foot by 8-foot "wailing wall" filled with more than 350 drawers salvaged from the neighborhoods in and around New Orleans in 2005.

Over 1,000,000 people saw the exhibit in New Orleans, Austin, and New York.

The CCAC show was Floodwall's first appearance in the Midwest.

The second event was Everyone's Famous! Blogger Bash, put together by 5chw4r7z and hosted by Andrew Van Sickle and AVS Art Gallery on W Fourth Street.

A fairly decent crowd turned out for the four-hour event, which featured drinks, food and music amid the artwork of Jason Brunson.

Courtney Brown (pictured) and Daniel S. Hines of the Know Theatre of Cincinnati also stopped by to perform a couple of numbers from Reefer Madness: The Musical.

The final shots are just shots I captured in Hyde Park and Camp Washington on my way to or from somewhere else....

All of these photos have been added to the following galleries:

Galleries for dozens of other Greater Cincinnati neighborhoods can be found in the drop-down menu at the top of the right-hand column.
