News & Event
For four dazzling nights in 2017, more than a million people from our region came together for BLINK®. We soaked up the brilliant, visual extravaganza that shimmered across more than 20 of Cincinnati’s urban blocks. It wasn’t just a static display. The shared moment of art and light was integral to its phenomenal appeal.
Bridge, noun — a structure carrying a pathway or roadway over a depression or obstacle (such as a river); a time, place, or means of connection or transition — Merriam-Webster Dictionary
It’s no wonder we’re already feeling the energy of a new, expanded, and even more radiant BLINK® 2019 that will span both sides of the river — from Over-the-Rhine to Covington — Oct. 10-13. Right in the middle of the festival is the Roebling Suspension Bridge, which has been a powerful icon in our skyline and symbol of regional connectedness for more than a century. Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) has partnered with our donors and signed on to sponsor the BLINK® installation on the bridge. We’re anticipating the excitement of connecting millions across our region and this stunning landmark.
Greater Cincinnati Foundation’s 55th year has been one of focused energy, purpose and forward movement. We are grateful for everyone who has joined us this year in the vital work of creating a Greater Cincinnati where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.
As we reflect on 2018, we are pleased to share with you a recap of GCF major events for the year:
