The WACC Foundation

Written by Lynn Long. Posted in Foundation

The Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati Foundation is a 501c3 nonprofit organization formed by the Woman's Art Club of Cincinnati to convert the former Resthaven Barn in Mariemont as a community arts center, the Woman's Art Club Cultural Center. The Foundation maintains and operates the Barn and raises funds for its continuing development. Currently the Foundation's most urgent project is to convert the Loft (second floor of the Barn) into a usable, flexible space for classes, performances, and events.

In 2014, great strides were made in developing the Loft. The area was brought into compliance with the fire code; the former opening for storing hay was closed up (with original flooring borrowed from a storage area); a mishmash of wooden and steel posts were encased in handsome wood to support event lighting and electrical outlets. Water damaged sections of the roof will be structurally repaired and the original fir floors will be refinished in December. But it's not all work and no play - the Loft was the site of of a life-size recreation of Van Gogh's "Bedroom at Arles" as part of the Brettell Lecture reception in April; historical exhibits and crafts for kids as part of Macy's "Arts Sampler"; and a spooky decorated pumpkin gallery during Artoberfest.

In 2015, funds from the Helen G, Henry F, & Louise Tuechter Dornette Foundation will go towards a new access door to the Tack Room on the first floor, windows to replace the existing hatches, and the creation of a storage area/future furnace room.
