CET is ME
Thursday, September 23, 2021 - Saturday, September 25, 2021
There comes a time in the history of an organization when looking back propels you forward. When you realize that the impact you have had in popular culture and even right here in our own hometown is profound and prolific. It’s that kind of reflection that helped us realize it was time to celebrate the stories of our community – your stories, our stories, the stories of Cincinnati and of CET.
Join us as we celebrate the many unique and original aspects and qualities of CET and PBS with an outdoor experience that utilizes our building as the canvas. Our outdoor gathering will amplify the idea of CET is ME by animating the exterior with light, color and projection, connecting to the community, the neighborhood and CET like never before.
When you purchase a ticket for this event, you will be able to party with a purpose. You can watch The Singing Mural come to life, dance the night away, purchase food and drinks from various food trucks and if you’re lucky, you may get a chance to take a selfie with a PBS character! This is a first-of-its-kind experience for our community and your local PBS station.
Looking to completely transform LIVE! on CET, Brave Berlin, the creators of Lumenocity and BLINK were invited to help us 'sing' our own song. This partnership was made possible by a generous donation from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Foundation.
With their help, we will offer an experience that will tell our story, past, present and future. The experience will be highlighted by a 'performance' by some of our closest supporters.
This mural is a fantastic ode to the Queen City's rich arts and cultural legacy. Designed by nationally renowned artist and Cincinnati resident, C.F. Payne, this cast of characters represents the community coming together in celebration of the arts.
What song will they be singing? A selection that will be meaningful to our honoree — Dr. O'dell Owens! Depending on your sponsorship level, sponsor up to four mural characters that are meaningful to you.
