The Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization.
Created by the Woman’s Art Club of Cincinnati in 2007, the Foundation purchased, renovated, and repurposed the former Resthaven Dairy Barn as a cultural arts center — The Woman’s Art Club Cultural Center, perhaps better know as The Barn.
The Foundation, through the offices of Executive Director Christine Moore, maintains and operates the Barn and raises funds for its continuing development. Over the years we have celebrated the conversion of the original hayloft to a flexible space for classes, workshops, movies, and performances and the addition of an elevator which makes every part of the Barn accessible.
Currently we are embarking on a historic restoration of the Barn’s exterior. Efforts to raise the funds for this have included a Give-A-Shingle campaign and applications for grants and other donations.
We are thrilled to have received a very generous anchor grant from the Thomas J. Emery Memorial Foundation in the amount of $25,000 – one third of the project cost of Phase I. This initial amount will attract more capital grants and keep this fantastic example of adaptive re-use as an Ohio Cultural Arts center going strong into the next century.
In March of 2021, the Helen G., Henry F., and Louise Tuechter Dornette Foundation awarded us a $25,000 grant toward Historical Restoration of the Resthaven Barn Exterior, Phase I. This gift brings us to the 85% mark for funding this urgent project.
Our Give-A-Shingle campaign has secured $???? from personal donations for replacing the exterior shingles on the Barn.
