In the spirit of the season, a neighborhood celebration is here to light up your holidays! Sponsored by Kennedy Heights and Pleasant Ridge, the 12th annual Winterfest on Friday, December 1 is packed with fun, festive and FREE activities for all ages.

The festivities begin at Pleasant Ridge Community Center, 5915 Ridge Ave. Families will enjoy games, crafts, refreshments, entertainment and visits with Santa. Then head down the street to the Kennedy Heights Arts Center for more celebrating. “Sip & Shop” from 6 – 7 p.m. at the Arts Center (Kennedy mansion). Enjoy complimentary hot cocoa while you view the Annual Kennedy Collective exhibition and browse our art shop to pick up unique gifts created by local artists!

At 7:00 go to the Lindner Annex at the corner of Kennedy and Montgomery for the family friendly party. Enjoy holiday carols from local church and temple choirs early in the evening, then music by a local band starting at 8:00. There will be food, cash bar, and holiday treats until 10 p.m.

Board Vacancies

We have two important roles to fill on the Kennedy Heights Community Council board and are asking for your help. The role of President and Vice President of Administration will be vacant at the beginning of the year and we are asking for the community's help in finding our next President and VP of Administration. These are both one year terms from January through December.

What are the responsibilities of these roles?

Duties and responsibilities of the President:

  1. Preside at meetings of the Council and the Board of Trustees.
  2. Appoint committee chairs.
  3. Represent KHCC outside of Kennedy Heights.
  4. Provide overall guidance and direction to KHCC activities.

Duties and responsibilities of the Vice-President for Administration:

  1. Assist the President as needed.
  2. In the absence of the President, assume the duties of the latter.
  3. Oversee fundraising.
  4. Monitor and manage the Neighborhood Support Worker Project.
  5. Assure completion of the annual audit shortly after election to office.

You would not be on your own to manage either role. The board works as a team and supports one another on governing the council and making necessary decisions that have a positive impact on the neighborhood.

Our next meeting is in November, which is when we elect our board members for the following year for those that have term limits up. We encourage you or someone you know to step up and consider serving on the Kennedy Heights Community Council.

There are many great opportunities and experiences to gain from these leadership roles. If you have any questions about either of these roles, please email

Along with Pleasant Ridge, Kennedy Heights is proud to be a member of "district-a" - Where arts+community meet!

The Caring Place!
Spotlight: Clyde Otis
A year after the old Kroger store property at Kennedy and Montgomery was transformed into the Kennedy
Heights Cultural Campus, there is more excitement happening at the corner. The nondescript exterior will be brought to life with public art!

Kennedy Heights Arts Center is partnering with ArtWorks to create a mural on the façade of the Center’sLindner Annex at the campus. Artist Casey Riordan Millard, herself a Kennedy Heights resident, designed the mural with input from a committee of local residents. Mostly known for her “Shark Girl” sculptures, drawings, paintings, and publications, Millard’s work has drawn the admiration of a growing national audience. The mural will be painted this summer by a team of professional artists and young adult art apprentices.

You can be a part of the project, too! Everyone is invited to Community Day at the mural on Saturday, July 16 from 11am to 2pm. Casey and the ArtWorks team will lead participants in making artwork inspired by the mural. These works by community members will come together in an installation in the Annex’s lobby. Adults and youth of all ages are invited to participate.

This vibrant mural will not only be a treasured asset for Kennedy Heights, but it will also attract visitors from throughout the region. It will inspire everyone to see the beauty of our community!

Voices from Oaxaca
Oaxaca is a state in southern Mexico where a strong tradition of printmaking exists started by well-known artist Francisco Toledo. Toledo created a center for printmaking to preserve the indigenous culture of his state and keep it alive through the voice of its artists. Print makers in Oaxaca use their art to reflect on their culture and on the social justice issues they face.

“Sharing the art of Oaxaca printmakers with the Cincinnati community contributes to cultural exchange and illustrates the power of art as the voice of the artist for a universal better world,” remarks Ghosn.

A book documenting the exhibition, the featured artists and their work will be published and given free to visitors (while supplies last).

Visiting artist Ivan Bautista, print maker active in several Oaxacan artist collectives, will give a talk at Kennedy Heights Arts Center about his work and the arts scene in Oaxaca and its connection to local culture and social issues at 6:30pm on September 30, as part of the opening reception. Bautista will also give talks and lead printmaking workshops at Xavier University, Miami University, and Tiger Lily Press during his one week residency.

Voices from Oaxaca runs through November 12, 2017. Gallery hours are Tuesday-Friday, 10am to 5pm and Saturday, 11am to 4pm. More information at
