You’re invited to a film screening of As We Bloom, a multimedia exhibition led by Asa Featherstone, IV, celebrating the transfer of information across generations and human connection and the challenging of perspectives.

RSVP to the As We Bloom Film Screening

Over the course of a seven-week residency, seven students learned the basic elements of storytelling, mobile/digital/film photography, filmmaking, and interviewed a collection of people within their community from different generations under the mentorship of Featherstone. The students created a collection of new works that become an abstract multimedia exhibition about freedom, justice, wonder, and coming of age through multiple eras. Featherstone guided production and shared work alongside the Youth Artists. As We Bloom is a part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial.

ArtWorks has employed and trained over 3,500 professional artists and 4,000 youth, ages 14 – 24. We invest in our creative economy by creating jobs that support local talent, pairing professional artists to inspire and mentor diverse teams of youth, helping them build 21st-century career-readiness skills. Over the past 26 years, this collaborative approach has created a citywide gallery with more than 14,000 public and private art projects, including more than 250 permanent outdoor murals.

About the Biennial

The 2022 FotoFocus Biennial, now in its sixth iteration, activates over 100 projects at museums, galleries, universities, and public spaces throughout Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton and Columbus, Ohio in October 2022. Each Biennial is structured around a unifying theme; for 2022 that theme, World Record, considers photography’s extensive record of life on earth while exploring humankind’s impact on the natural world. FotoFocus welcomes global artists, curators, critics, educators, and regional visitors to Cincinnati with exhibitions, talks, performances, screenings, and panel discussions during an expanded week of programming, September 29–October 8, 2022.
