Indigenous in O'Bryonville


This week we went to an art and craft store in O'Bryonville, a neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio located on 2010 Madison Road. A presentation was going on there called Modern Marbles which was made up of handmade art glass orbs (marbles). This is done every two years in August and showcased at Indigenous. It ends August 31st so hurry and get out there to the store. 

We were met by a lady ,who worked at the store ( I didn't get her name ) (if you know her, let us know and we will give her props) she was nice, accommodating, answered our questions and was, I think, surprised by me asking permission if I could take photos, which she graciously said I could.   

Among the "marbles" and in surrounding areas of the store where books of art, pictures, postcards ect., along with just about any handcrafted items you may want, including wind chimes, sun catchers, pottery, jewelry, wood crafts, stained glass and what looked to be robots made from an old dial telephone, or a ham container to a small refrigerator robot. 

If you don't get to see the marbles, please go to the store to take in the other handcrafted items it has to offer. We went to the store without invitation, we were not paid to do this, we were not given items in exchange, as this is our own opinion in what we observed.

Lumenocity 2014

They had Lumenocity again this year and we went and took a couple of our friends who have never been. This is the second year that Cincinnati has done Lumenocity. This year they did things a little different then last year. Last year you just went to the event, this year you had to have tickets. The tickets were free and they went very fast. 
Like last year, this year did not disappoint. This is truly an amazing thing to see. If you are not familiar with what Lumenocity is, they do a light show at night and the back drop is the historic Music Hall. They set all the lights to music that the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra plays live. So this is also a chance for you to hear them.
It is a one of a kind experience. I think my favorite part was the end because the lights they do make Music Hall take a bow. You will be able to see what I am talking about if you watch the video that I post all the way to the end. They did this at the end of the show last year and it is so cool to see the building looking like it is taken a bow. 
If they do this next year make sure you check it out. I am sure you will be in aw.

40's Day at the Cincinnati Museum Center

The Cincinnati Museum center had 40's day so we went to check it out. It was really neat to see all the old cars from the 40's that they had. They also had dancer doing 40's style dancing. This was a really neat event. Some of the employees were dressed as people from the 40's. There was Dick Tracey and even Al Capone who by the way I got to meet :)
This was a free event all you had to pay for was parking.
If they have anything else like this again, make sure you check it out.
