>>>> Opportunity! The Ohio History Connection is looking for artists
The Ohio History Connection is looking for artists to demonstrate and sell their work this summer and beyond. Below is the invitation. If you are interested, please reach out to Katie at OHC. Thanks!
Good afternoon!
My name is Katie Nowack and I am a program developer at The Ohio History Connection. We are so excited to announce that Ohio Village (our recreated 1890s town) will be opening in early July this year! I wanted to reach out to you to ask for your help- we are searching for artisans to demonstrate on site for our opening weekends.
Ohio Village will be open from June 30th-July 4th from 10am-5pm and again from July 7th-11th from 10am-5pm; the first weekend is for our members, and the next weekend is the opening for general public. After that, we will be open from every Wednesday-Sunday until the end of October. We are looking for artisans to set up under our tents and do demonstrations of their craft to our members and visitors. Artisans will be provided a table and chairs, and are welcome to sell their wares or provide any marketing material they may have.
If you know of any artisans, particularly those with trades that would be common in the 1890s, I would love to be able to reach out to them. We want to make sure our opening is authentic, community-oriented, and has extraordinary artists, and I know that you will have access to the best artisans around!
If artisans cannot make the first two weekends, we are hoping to have demonstrations every weekend until the end of October and welcome any artisan that would like to be there!
Please let me know if you have any questions or would like more information. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
