Clifton Cultural Arts Center

3711 Clifton Avenue


The guiding vision of Clifton Cultural Arts Center is one of a dynamic and collaborative civic hub – a bustling hive of artistic activity and personal expression where people of all ages and backgrounds, from all over Greater Cincinnati, will come and go from morning until evening.

But unlike any typical community arts center, Clifton Cultural Arts Center is uniquely inspired and endowed by the opportunity to create an unparalleled, multi-venue campus while preserving two significant historic buildings adjacent to the established Clifton Recreation Center.

With programs designed to appeal to a broad spectrum of ages, backgrounds and ability levels, Clifton Cultural Arts Center and our partners will attract a diverse array of accomplished and aspiring artists, hobbyists, aficionados, dabblers, and those who just come to observe, enjoy the unique environment and enrich their daily lives.

Clifton Cultural Arts Center is located in the heart of Clifton near Clifton Recreation Center. This is a place that is welcoming to all. There are events for the young, old, and in between. I especially enjoyed the concerts on the green. It has a nice vibe. There is also opportunity to rent out the space for events.
