Position Title: Intern, Theme Day Intern
Department: Community Collaborations
Location: Union Terminal – 1301 Western Ave, Cincinnati, OH, 45203
Reports to: Director of Community Collaborations
 
Position Overview
Theme Days are an exciting way to bring exhibits, historic events, and particular features on specific dates to life. Theme Days can vary from a festival focused on bugs or fossil or a celebration of cultures and time zones from around the world. Theme Days bring people of all generations together to focus on a specific topic together. Above all, Theme Days are fun! However, Theme Days also take a lot of work. There are event memos to be created, community partners to invite, layouts to be drafted, tables to be sent, posters to create and hang, guests to greet, and so much more. This is a great hands-on internship that will set up the intern up for event planning and execution in the future. This summer we will be focusing on two upcoming Theme Days: Our Shared Story Day & 1940s Day.

Our Shared Story Day (July 2022):
Our Shared Story Day will be a celebration of the temporary featured exhibit sharing its name and 200 Years of Jewish Cincinnati. The exhibit celebrates the lasting influences of Cincinnati’s Jewish community on the city we know today. Jewish influences in Cincinnati have shaped our food, medicine, arts institutions, social justice movements, how we enjoy sports and more. 
 
In the exhibit, guests will discover, or rediscover, the stories of Rabbis Isaac M. Wise and Eliezer Silver, Albert Sabin and Henry Heimlich, the Krohns, Aronoffs and Rosenthals and the birth of Jewish Hospital, Big Brothers, Big Sisters and more. They’ll learn about the traditions behind yarmulkes, dreidels and menorahs and the Jewish connection to baseball’s favorite phrase “going, going, gone!”

The theme day will take the celebration one step further by bringing in community partners, hands-on activities, and more. This intern will assist with the planning and execution of Our Shared Story Day.
 
1940’s Day (fall of 2022):
1940s Day is a long-standing large living history, fully immersive, annual event put on by Cincinnati Museum Center. Traditionally, there is live music, dancing, musical performances, historical vendors/ displays, lectures, and a vintage car and/or air show. 1940s Day is our single largest crowd generating event of the year. Most guests choose to join in the immersive experience by attending dressed in period clothing. Due to COVID, this will be the first 1940s Day since 2019. The intern will help bring the event back to life from planning to promotion of 1940s Day 2022.

Project Description 

The Cincinnati Nature Center’s Earth Expression project is an outdoor and interactive art exhibit consisting of sculptural installation(s) located in our Witt Pollinator Garden and/or Nature PlayScape. The Nature PlayScape is a 1.6-acre enclosed habitat that lets children safely explore forests, fields, and streams with minimal human-made interventions. The Witt Pollinator Garden allows guests to wander through a spiral-shaped garden of native plants that attract birds, bees, butterflies, and other pollinators. The Nature PlayScape and Pollinator Garden reside next to one another on the property; ideally, the project would connect the Pollinator Garden, physically or conceptually, to the Nature PlayScape. 

Our goal is to welcome, surprise, and engage both new and repeat visitors from across the region in a captivating outdoor art experience. The exhibit is a temporary, six-month installation during late summer, fall, and early winter.

Earth Expression will create an art experience that is active, immersive, and social, and stretches the boundaries of the sculptural form. The project will be promoted through various channels, including social media posts, e-blasts, press releases, and our website. Earth Expression is a grant supported project with ArtsWave.

Cincinnati Nature Center staff will design program opportunities around the installation(s) that may encourage guests to create their own art using natural materials, or if appropriate for the artist’s vision, assist in co-creating the artwork.

One artist will be selected through an RFP process and committee. When choosing an artist, the committee will consider:
- The proposed sculpture(s) is based on a nature theme related to the Cincinnati region 
- The proposed sculpture(s) can withstand wind and rain/snow
- The proposed sculpture(s) are touchable and/or interactive 
- Artist experience creating installations in an outdoor setting
- Artist experience working with the public and ability to share and promote their work
