Grants for Arts & Culture
Signs & Wonders is a short subset of Now. Here. This., a film celebrating the diversity and resilience of a Walnut Hills, a community boasting of a rich history: from its heyday in the 1900’s, to its near collapse as Interstate-71 split the neighborhood in two, to the quiet renaissance of today.
This film is collaborative effort between composer, producer, and Grammy nominee Ric Hordinski, and award winning Photographer Michael Wilson, best known for his work in magazines like Fast Company and Mother Jones.
Major funding for the project is provided by ArtsWave and a LISC Grant.

Funding for their new van was made possible through the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty’s Community Grants Fund.
