The Cincinnati we know today was built on two powerful things: baseball and great arts. The Cincinnati Reds (as the Red Stockings) were the first all professional baseball team in the United States, and ArtsWave (as the Cincinnati Institute of Fine Arts) was the first — and remains the largest — community arts fund in the nation. Strong arts and sports are woven into the fabric of our region.

So, it only makes sense for ArtsWave and the Reds to work together. When you purchase tickets to an April or May Reds game on, $5 from your ticket will go to support the 2018 ArtsWave Community Campaign and more than 100 arts organizations that make Cincinnati an amazing place to live.

That's not all! Next Wednesday, April 25, is Bob Ross Theme Night at Great American Ballpark. Every ticket purchased through the link above will not only benefit ArtsWave, but you'll get a discount and an exclusive Bob Ross bobblehead figure. See the Reds take on the Atlanta Braves while supporting the arts that make Cincinnati a great place to live.

All this is in addition to the usual benefits our donors receive for the Reds: a pair of free tickets for new donors or 10%+ increases to gifts over $75 and 40% off tickets to select Reds game as part of the ArtsWave Pass.
