Arts & Accessibility

Clovernook Center’s Braille Printing House is the largest braille printing house in the world. Through their Arts & Accessibility Initiative they support cultural institutions and museums throughout the United States, ensuring that individuals who are blind and visually impaired have high-quality accessible experiences alongside their sighted peers.

Thanks to the generosity of a local grant-maker, institutions such as The Met and Carnegie Hall will now receive an array of materials including braille, large print, tactile graphics in multiple formats, audio, print/braille, and signage, as well as accessibility consulting to evaluate an exhibit/gallery space, through Clovernook Center’s Arts & Accessibility Initiative.

Signs & Wonders

Signs & Wonders

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.
