One of the most interesting stories I have had the privilege to write for the Business Courier was about 10 up-and-coming young arts patrons who will be guiding our great Cincinnati arts institutions in the decades to come. For as long as I’ve covered the arts here, there has been hand-wringing over who will replace those great philanthropists and board leaders who have gone before. The Nipperts and Corbetts are just two of most well-known names from the previous generation, among many others.
Cincinnati has a great history of generosity and stewardship that goes back more than a century. You only need to consider this:
The CSO turns 125 in 2020
Cincinnati Opera turns 100 in 2020
Art Academy of Cincinnati turns 150 in 2019
UC’s College-Conservatory of Music is celebrating its 150th this year.
That kind of legacy takes leadership and creativity. And it takes changing with the times. Who could have imagined that an arts event called Blink could bring a million people downtown last year?
These young leaders already hold some of the city’s most important board roles. I think the arts are and will be in very good hands.
So who are the 10? Read the story here.
