We are pleased to invite you to our winter exhibit being held in partnership with the Cincinnati Museum Center, Treasures in Black & White.
Treasures in Black & White showcases historic photographs originally published in the book, “Historic Photos of Cincinnati” with text and captions by Linda Bailey. This book inspired Cincinnati Museum Center’s 2014 FotoFocus Biennial show TREASURES IN BLACK & WHITE: HISTORIC PHOTOGRAPHS OF CINCINNATI. The 52 large-format photographs in our winter exhibit contain 100 years of Cincinnati history documented in black and white photographs. From rare, early-camera images documenting the Civil War era to many subsequent scenes and events — the Great Flood of 1937, the returning heroes of the 20th-century wars, early television stars, the rising urban cityscapes of 1960 — Treasures in Black & White: Historic Photographs of Cincinnati captures the Queen City, between 1860 and 1960.
Cincinnati’s first curated coworking space located in the downtown business district is built to empower professional achievement and self-fulfillment amidst an environment of culture and elegance. In a world overflowing with information and chaos, 1628 is the guardian of your daily routine, protector of efficiency, and practitioner of old-school hospitality. Proactively attuned to needs, we fill the emptiness with energy. Distinctively sophisticated, but rooted in modernity, 1628 is a community of independent professionals and the professionally independent.
