About the Pump House Center for the Arts (Source: thepumphouse.art):

Coming Exhibit: "The Hills"


"The purpose of the Pump House Center for the Arts is to provide art gallery space for significant visual exhibitions, original art, art education and participation for all ages, activities relating to all arts, special community and private rental events, and to welcome the whole community with free admission supported by memberships and by sponsorship reflecting the generosity of the community."


About Mapping The Self:

The Mapping the Self: Identities in Appalachia project was developed as part of an Experiential Learning grant (https://www.ohio.edu/acel/experiential-learning) awarded to OHIO Chillicothe.

22 OHIO Chillicothe students and 5 community members will be participating in a blended art and writing project every Tuesday and Thursday from 2 pm to 3:30 pm from August 22 - December 10, 2022. The goal of these classes is to create a multi-genre map of personal histories, explore identities, view & discuss art, and participate in interactive workshops with other writers. Local community members participate for free in this non-credit bearing coursework.

Currently, the community seats are full for classroom participation, but there is a wait list for those interested. Please contact Deb Nickles, #OHIOChillicothe Professor of English, at nickles@ohio.edu for more details.
