Statement of Solidarity and Unity
The recent events in our city and across the nation have reminded us of the deep pain felt by so many and the work that still needs to be done to unify us as a nation. The Aronoff Center and Music Hall are unique venues that bring people together for a shared artistic experience that has the power to promote understanding and unity. It is part of the Cincinnati Arts Association’s mission to serve all in our community. Our hearts are heavy over the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, and we continue to mourn the losses of Timothy Thomas, Samuel DuBose, and countless others throughout our country. We stand in unity with the black community in the struggle for racial equality and social justice. We are listening, and we will continue working for change and healing.
