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


Our 12th year of
launched September 1st and needs public support.

Each year our members' contributions cover the cost of rent for both our facilities, including the Gallery, Drawing Center, Artist Residency studios, book storage, art storage, and offices! In the coming season, 10% of all member contributions will also be dedicated to a
Drawing Center scholarship fund.

Without this community support Manifest would not exist.


Manifest is a member-supported 501(c)(3) non-profit organization



Among many other exciting plans Season 12 brings twenty-nine exhibitions to the gallery, a dramatically growing Drawing Center educational program, and the momentous increase of the annual Manifest Prize to $5000 to reward the achievement of excellence for one peer-juried work of art.

Every year our members contribute about 10% of Manifest's operating costs, making what we do possible!
This may seem like a small percentage, but it covers our entire facility rent for all Manifest offices, galleries, artist residency studios, and our Drawing Center studios!

This season marks a further meaningful impact of membership. Starting this year, and because of growing support and sponsorship, 10% of each season's membership contributions will be designated for two scholarship funds for Drawing Center programs—a merit scholarship for high school students, and a 'bridge fund' to support the transition of emerging artists from academia into a career in the arts through study and professional development in the artist-culture at the Manifest Drawing Center. So, not only does membership sustain our essential facilities, without which we could not do what we do, now it also empowers Manifest's support of individual artists at a formative stage in their development.

Share why you support Manifest

As a community-minded 501(c)(3) non-profit arts organization, founded upon ideals formed both in academic pursuit and a commitment to quality urban living, Manifest relies heavily on private donations to cover operating costs. Since 2004 the Manifest board of directors has taken serious measures to insure that Manifest is a low-cost/maximum benefit presence in East Walnut Hills and Greater Cincinnati, and a progressive influence on the arts in our region and around the world. Our goal is to provide a context for the study and experience of excellent visual art, without making compromises otherwise necessary in a commercial art-dealing gallery or larger organization. Through its rich programming Manifest brings the world to Cincinnati, and represents Cincinnati to the world, one work of art at a time.
