Local History: Historic Photographs of Extreme Cincinnati Weather
This two-part exhibition includes a gallery exhibition of photographic prints and a public art component of large scale reproductions to be installed on selected buildings throughout the business districts in Northside, Clifton, and Camp Washington. The images depict extreme weather events focusing on the 1937 Flood in Cincinnati selected from the archives of the Cincinnati Museum Center and other resources. This exhibition and public art project showcase the rich history of photojournalism in the city of Cincinnati and also provide a cautionary tale as to how powerful Mother Nature can be, reminding us to respect that power.
