A collection of influential books gifted from the personal libraries of revered arts and cultural figures.

Advice for Future Homecomers @ People’s Liberty

We are excited to be included in the final exhibition at the People’s Liberty space on Elm Street next to Findlay Market. We are building a library for Advice for Future Homecomers curated by Cal Cullen of Wave Pool and includes work by Elese Daniels, Lizzy Duquette, Llewellyn Fletcher, Christian Schmit, and Catherine Whithead.

The show is aimed at inviting reflection and exchange around homecoming and what it looks like to engage in our changing communities with through fullness and care.

The exhibition will open on September 13th with a reception from 6 -9pm and will run though November 10.

Each Friday and Saturday join Schmit in the storefront for Pretzel Baking between 9-11am, followed by a roving pretzel cart around Findlay Market from 12noon until the pretzels run out. Grab a pretzel in exchange for advice for future Cincinnatians.

The last 4 Fridays of the exhibition Lizzy DuQuette will be performing shadow puppet shows in the storefront.

There will be a panel discussion on October 19th between baker/farmer James Luckett, artist Christian Schmit, Dean’s Mediterranean owner Kate Zaiden, and People’s Liberty Fellow Asa Featherstone.

The project will also leave behind a zine designed by Megan Trishler of collected advice for Cincinnatians alongside bread recipes to help lead us to a better future.

Megan Trishler of People’s Liberty says of the exhibit, “More than a bold capstone to mark the conclusion of People’s Liberty, Advice for Future Homecomers embodies a question so many of us are asking: how do you preserve the spirit of a changing neighborhood? Cal’s thoughtful curation invites a diverse mix of artists to engage the question (and the city) in ways that feel true to the surrounding Findlay Market neighborhood.”

People’s Liberty is located at 1805 Elm St. and will be open to the public for this exhibition Thursday – Saturday 10-4am. More information about this project can be found at www.wavepoolgallery.org and www.peoplesliberty.org
