Purchase A Seat Plaque


As we raise the curtain after an unexpected and over-extended intermission, the Cincinnati Arts Association invites you to support the Aronoff Center with a donation that allows you to add your name to a beautiful brass plaque on the arm of a select Procter & Gamble Hall seat. Or celebrate a loved one, honor an arts lover, or give a gift to the person who has everything with a seat donation that leaves a legacy. This is a rare opportunity to take your seat in history!

Your seat donation will not only help support the Cincinnati Arts Association’s ongoing stewardship of the Aronoff Center (and Music Hall), but also sustain our life-changing arts education programs, impactful Arts-in-Healing Initiative, and compelling exhibitions by local and regional artists at the Aronoff's Weston Art Gallery.

You can name a seat for:

  • An individual, couple, family, or beloved pet
  • Your children, grandchildren, or parents
  • The memory of a loved one
  • A friend or colleague
  • A business or organization
  • And more

Your seat plaque guarantees that you or your loved one will be a part of the Aronoff Center for generations to come!
