Made in Camp is an Artists’ and Manufacturers’ Open House that happens in the Cincinnati neighborhood of Camp Washington.

“MADE IN CAMP” ARTIST AND MAKERSPACE NEIGHBORHOOD TOUR RETURNS FOR ITS SECOND YEAR, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 13, 12-5pm

Camp Washington’s community of 40-plus artists, galleries, and makers are collaborating on a neighborhood-wide open house on Saturday, October 13th, from 12-5pm. Dubbed ‘Made In Camp’, this event includes chances to meet with artists in their studios, access to oft-hidden makers spaces, and demonstrations by Camp Washington manufacturers.

A new, 2018/19 brochure will be available listing The Camp’s artists, galleries and makers and incorporating a locator map for the convenience of visitors. Brightly colored signs hung along the route will match up with the numbered artist locations on the map. Two vans will be circulating the art route throughout the event so that the public can hop on and off at the various art sites. The vans begin their routes at 12 noon at the American Sign Museum where special parking has been arranged. The public may also drive and walk the route on their own, and pick up the map and list of artist open houses at any of the event host sites (American Sign Museum, Wave Pool, Camp Washington Community Board, and other artist studios).

Demonstrations will be offered at three area businesses and manufacturers: Neonworks will be demonstrating the art of tube-bending at 1pm and 3pm; Reliable Castings will take visitors through the casting process from 12-1pm; and Schenz Theatrical Supply will be demoing costume making all day. After the studio tours, Erin Taylor’s ‘Eyes on Camp’ music festival will serve as an after party with food and drink options from 5-8pm at 2970 Colerain Ave.

Support for this program was provided by Wave Pool, the Camp Washington Community Board, the American Sign Museum, and SpringDot Printing
