Cincinnatians had been wondering when the Cincinnati Museum of Art would reopen for more than a year.
Then, a few weeks ago, they got a surprise.
It was a surprise because the museum was on its last legs.
The $6 million museum had been shuttered for nearly a year, and in its place had been a $6.5 million rehabilitation and renovation project in the city’s River Arts District.
The renovated and expanded building will host more than 2,000 artists and cultural programs and the first of several new galleries and theaters.
And for the first time, the museum will open for business, too.
As it turns out, the arts and arts-related projects that are happening now in the River Arts district have a lot in common with the Cincinnati museum, as a whole.
The first thing that comes to mind is that the River Art district is the area’s premier cultural destination, with museums, galleries and shops, along with other cultural and entertainment venues, popping up everywhere.
The River Arts neighborhood is home to the Cuyahoga Valley Cultural Center, which has a collection of more than 1,000 cultural artifacts and exhibitions, including works by the likes of Edvard Munch, Claude Monet, David Hockney, Robert Rauschenberg and Robert Louis Stevenson.
The arts and cultural projects that happen in the Cudillamart district, however, have a different kind of significance.
They are also part of the city and state’s effort to revitalize the area and the river.
They include a museum that is expected to open later this year, the new River Arts Neighborhood Development Corporation, which is funded by a $2.8 million state grant and will offer $3 million to revitalization efforts, and a new district with a $5.3 million investment from the Cincinnati Cultural Trust.
The River Arts community has been in crisis since the 2010 flooding that killed six people and displaced hundreds.
As the river’s levels rose, more and more homes were destroyed and residents struggled to rebuild.
The river is the main artery for the region and the region’s economy.
The restoration project, however; it’s a much larger effort to rebuild the river from the bottom up.
It includes a $1.9 million project that will add a bridge across the Ohio River, the first step in a wider effort to reconnect the river to the rest of the region.
It will be completed in 2021.
And it will help rebuild bridges over the Ohio and Cincinnati Rivers, as well as widen a major road and pedestrian bridge.
It will be the first bridge of its kind in the U.S.
Cincinnati will also open a new riverfront park and riverfront trail that will include a new, landscaped and landscaped boardwalk and boat ramp.
The new park will feature a $500,000 green space and $50,000 in parkland that will also be available to the public for free.
It also includes $400,000 for a new park and trail on the riverfront, a $40,000 project to improve river access, and $20,000 to repair flood damage from a recent flood.
And, most important, it’s the first project to be funded through the Cincinnati Arts Community Development Corporation.
That’s a nonprofit that helps to build and maintain the river and its arts and culture districts.
It’s a $4 million grant that the city is now using to help revitalize and rebrand the river districts and arts districts.
This isn’t a new initiative.
The city has been partnering with the nonprofit for years.
But, the $1 million grant for the river revitalization project and the $5 million for the new park are part of a much broader project that has been under way since the flooding that hit the area in 2010.
The idea behind the Cincinnati arts revitalization was to make it possible for the city to start again.
It was a way to revive the economy.
It is a way for people to come back.
It brings people together.
I think that it’s going to be really successful for our community.
So, it has been a huge success, and we’re very proud of it.
And we’re grateful to have the resources that are available to us.
We’re really excited about the work that is going to happen over the next couple of years.
There are a lot of artists and performers coming together.
We’re also excited to see how the city continues to evolve and improve.
We really think that the river district will continue to grow and flourish and we look forward to seeing that happen.
