Sit & Stay Awhile: Community Day

  • Sit & Stay Awhile: Community Day

    • Saturday, May 28, 11AM-3PM
    • On the lawn at KHAC

    Join us for a free Community Day at Kennedy Heights Arts Center on Saturday, May 28 from 11am to 3pm.

    Artist Jennifer Cox will transform the front lawn of the Arts Center to create an inviting and cozy family barbeque experience for everyone to enjoy. Over the past month, Jen collaborated with local residents to design and construct handmade outdoor seating, structures and décor to create welcoming spaces for residents to sit and stay awhile.

    Relax on beautiful seating, sip lemonade, grab a burger (or falafel), play lawn games, and plant herbs for your future summer recipes. Free food from Fire on High food truck and Streetpops for the first 100 guests.

    Enjoy live music and a variety of outdoor games, plus put your creativity in the mix with art-making activities including block printing and making peace flags and friendship bracelets.

    Community Day will be held outdoors on the lawn of the Kennedy mansion, 6546 Montgomery Road. Rain date is Sunday, May 29.

    Please park in the large parking lot at the KHAC Lindner Annex at the corner of Montgomery and Kennedy Ave. Limited parking for those with mobility challenges will be available on-site at the Kennedy mansion.

    This summer, we are partnering with diverse artists in an initiative we call Hello & Welcome, designing outdoor installations that will transform our campus into a welcoming space to create and connect. Each installation will be unveiled at Community Day celebrations on the 4th Saturday of the month from April to September.

    Support for this initiative is provided by a grant from the Ohio Arts Council.
