Pivot Center Update

Our west-side location at the Pivot Center is well on its way to completion! Check out the pictures below to see our beautiful arts center coming to life!

Pivot Center Dream Capsule Installation

In the lobby of the Pivot Center, you will also discover Dream Capsule, an art installation envisioned, led, and constructed by Meng-Hsuan Wu. In Spring 2022, Meng conducted a community arts project in collaboration with the Rainey community- students, faculty, and alumni! Participants learned about origami, sound art, and 3-D printing and design over several weeks. The final installation is interactive: by pressing the button next to each 3-D printed paper airplane, you can hear the artist read a letter written to their future selves about their hopes, dreams, and plans. Stop by the Pivot Center lobby any day from 10am - 5pm to see the installation! Thank you to Ohio Arts Council and the William M. Weiss Foundation for supporting Dream Capsule.

As always, thank you for your support. Your commitment to Rainey's mission helps us continue to thrive and grow.
