STORIES OF OVER-THE-RHINE
The Stories of Over-the-Rhine travelling exhibit combines the personal stories of individuals from across time with specific locations in Over-the-Rhine. Together these human and geographic stories reveal larger national trends and Over-the-Rhine’s place in them.
The entire exhibit of six easy-to-install, portable panels is available to display in your church, business, or storefront. Hosting the exhibit is a great way to show your connection to the neighborhood and display these incredibly rich histories. Each double sided panel tells two stories of Over-the-Rhine, front and back.
