About

Wave Pool is located at 2940 Colerain Ave., Cincinnati, OH 45225

We are open Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 12noon – 5pm.

OUR MISSION
Wave Pool supports emerging and established artists from the Midwest and beyond; discovering the new and contributing to the surrounding community through experimental art exhibitions, interpretation, and programming.

OUR VISION
At Wave Pool we call ourselves a “Contemporary Art Fulfillment Center.” We aim to “fulfill” audiences through visual art; aesthetically, culturally, emotionally. But we are distinct in our passion for helping young artists. We’re very directly making a name for the artists we show, and for Cincinnati’s art scene, by doing this. Wave Pool is also interested in proactively engaging the larger, broader community, specifically in Camp Washington. We present art that is a catalyst for change, providing new ways to experience and transform our city.

Wave Pool is a 501-c-3 non-profit and receives support from foundations, sponsors, and individuals. Please consider giving to Wave Pool this year. Your generosity makes each facet of Wave Pool’s programming possible.

Wave Pool is located in an old firehouse in Camp Washington, Cincinnati. Our space consists of a gallery, artist studios, and woodshop. We also host one artist in residence at a time through our artist in residence fellowship program. If you would like to host a performance, class, or event in our space, or are interested in volunteering or partnering with us in someway, please contact us at wavepoolgallery@gmail.com – we’d love to hear from you!
