creative research gallery and drawing center
a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization



Centered in two urban Cincinnati neighborhoods while reaching a global base of participants, Manifest exists at an intense crossroads of diversity and culture where it witnesses and acknowledges the need to support individuals and groups who otherwise have little or no access to or understanding of the importance of visual arts and related study and practice. Our formation was, in part, a reaction to findings that the arts play a catalytic role in the revitalization process of depressed communities and a sustaining role in healthy ones, a fact that continues to hold true within our home bases of Walnut Hills and East Walnut Hills today. Manifest is committed to expanding and evolving programming that incorporates and inspires individuals across race, gender, age, religion, and identity, inviting them to experience and learn from artists from around the world, their peers, and professional mentors, in an open, inclusive, and safe environment.

Manifest's 17th season is funded in part by a grant from the Charles Moerlein Foundation, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee. This season's programming is also supported by an impact grant from ArtsWave, by a sustainability grant from the Ohio Arts Council, and through the generous contributions of individual supporters and private foundations who care deeply about the visual arts.
