Riding the ArtsWave challenge.
By Client Leadership Team
ArtsWave is the first and largest united arts fund in the country. You may not realize that it supports more than 100 arts organizations that help to make Cincinnati an amazing place to live! Places like ArtsWorks, Cincinnati Ballet, Playhouse in the Park, CAC, Ensemble Theatre, Findlay Market, and the Children’s Theatre may not exist without the support of such donations from local companies and individuals. Currently, the 2014 ArtsWave Community Campaign is in full swing and is one of the main drivers for community donations for the organization.

Our donations can continue to help make Cincinnati a significant city within the arts world.
Hyperquake was committed to making a company donation, but we didn’t want to stop there. So we came up with a plan to share the information about ArtsWave with our team members to see if we could get everyone onboard with providing support. For everyone that made a contribution, we had an afternoon planned to include lunch and the opportunity to participate in some fun art related activities with the chance to win a team prize, and most importantly – bragging rights!
We broke the agency into small teams to compete in four art categories; Painting, Sculpting, Acting & Photography. Each category was faced with a unique challenge; from painting a portrait of one of our partners while blind folded, to sculpting their favorite zoo animal with one hand tied behind their back! Everyone agreed this was a really fun way to think about the arts and work as a team to contribute to such a great cause.
Our main objective was to remind everyone the importance of supporting the arts in our city and how our donations can continue to help make Cincinnati a significant city within the arts world. We reached our team goal and had a great time doing so!
