The Emery Theatre, situated in the heart of Cincinnati’s theater district in Over-the-Rhine, is opening its doors to the Cincinnati Rollergirlst for a special screening of the new documentary Derby, Baby!. The theater, originally designed in 1911 by Harvey E. Hannaford, stood uninhabited for nearly a decade until 2008 when Tina Manchise and Tara Lindsay Gordon founded The Requiem project to raise funds for its rehabilitation. Although currently only open for special events, the space exhibits great architectural potential and opportunities for the Cincinnati community.

The City of Cincinnati is dressed in its best to host the 2012 World Choir Games, currently underway in venues throughout the city. The World Choir Games began in 2000 and is the largest choir competition in the world. Its motto is “Singing Together Brings Nations Together”. This week, Cincinnati becomes the first city in the USA to host the event, which has previously been hosted in Austria, South Korea, Germany and China. A quick walk through downtown today was truly inspirational. I’m so proud of my city I had to write about it!

Recently, a team of FRCH’ers joined 13 other local design firms to participate in Herman Miller & APG’s Good Design Challenge. Each team was presented with the iconic Eames molded plastic chair and asked, “What Inspires You?”
The only rules were that the base must remain attached to the chair. Any and all transformations were fair game and the end results were a little bit of everything.

Welcome to another historical tour of the city through the spectrum of hand-painted signage and advertising. This time we explore one of our most storied and culturally rich neighborhoods, Over The Rhine, located just north of downtown Cincinnati.

Paul Lechleiter, FRCH’s Chief Creative Officer and Partner has been adding his bold personality and energetic passion for design to FRCH since 1996. This past week, Paul took a break from his eventful schedule to discuss with me his thoughts on design, the creative process, and FRCH.

Inspired by our recent ArtsWave campaign and a good recommendation from Paul, I spent last Sunday afternoon at the Cincinnati Art Museum. There is a lovely Monet exhibit happening now, as well as some great Picasso sketches. But for me, Nick Cave’s Soundsuits are really the showstoppers.

For many years, FRCH has supported ArtsWave (formerly “Fine Arts Fund”) through annual awareness and fund raising campaigns. This cause is near and dear to our hearts because ArtsWave is an organization that funds and collaborates with a wide range of local art institutions to support the entire arts community of Cincinnati. Their mission is ‘to be a leader and regional catalyst that works to advance the vitality and vibrancy of Greater Cincinnati by mobilizing the creative energy of the entire community’. That’s a mission we can all get behind. Last week was dedicated to the arts as we ran our 2012 campaign to support ArtsWave, FRCH style!
