As Northern Kentucky’s largest and only multi-disciplinary arts organization, The Carnegie fills an artistic cultural gap in our community by offering theatre events, educational programs, and art exhibitions to the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati communities.
Through creating, performing, and experiencing the arts, visitors at The Carnegie experience increased enjoyment, reduced stress, a greater sense of community pride, and a better understanding of others' perspectives. The arts create positive community image and increase the social capital of our city creating more opportunities for tourists, businesses, and workers.
With your help, The Carnegie will be able to expand the mission of fulfilling the artistic gap in our surrounding community to the newly renovated Lincoln Grant School and Hellmann Lumber Building.
Your donation will ensure The Carnegie remains the leader in the arts in Northern Kentucky, serving the more than 85,000 patrons that walk through our doors for gallery, theatre and education programs. Please join in helping us transform the every day into the unexpected.
