Not just any Art.
Not just any [Virtual] Art Studio.

Visionaries and Voices (V+V) began in 2003 when a dedicated group of social workers and artists dreamed of a place where artists with disabilities could be encouraged and supported. They eventually leased studio space in Cincinnati’s Northside neighborhood to accommodate a growing number of artists – from 3 to 30 within two years. Since that time V+V has continued to expand, and today supports over 135 artists with disabilities each year at two locations in Northside and Tri-County.  V+V artists actively contribute to the greater arts community through creative, educational, and strategic partnerships with local and regional artists, schools, and business leaders. Collectively, we are growing a more inclusive arts community in Greater Cincinnati.

2020, the year of improvisation.

Our in-person studios were previously closed from April through June. As the impact of COVID-19 increases we have regretfully decided to temporarily close both V+V studio locations, effective November 30th. The health and safety of our artists and staff is of the utmost importance to us. Due to the diligence of our staff and artists following strict safety precautions, we’ve been fortunate to not have any known cases. We want to keep it that way. We will continue to monitor the situation to determine when it is appropriate to reopen, and we will continue to offer virtual studio each day from 10 AM to Noon to isolated artists.

In place of the annual Holly Dazed party & art sale, we invite you to participate from the safety of the internet. Beginning on #GIVINGTUESDAY, December 1st, a $50 donation will enter you in a raffle to win a 12-year bottle of the rare Pappy Van Winkle! 

Raffle tickets will be sold until December 18th, or until 150 tickets have been sold. 


The Prize

  • Pappy Van Winkle Special Reserve 12-Year

    Van Winkle Special Reserve is the perfect combination of age and proof. This sweet, full-bodied whiskey has been described by some as “nectar.” The 12 years of aging and medium proof seem to be just right in creating a very pleasant drink of whiskey. This fine bourbon can compete with any excellent cognac as an after-dinner drink. The overall impression is rich and deep. Estimated value is $1,100.

    Tasting notes
    See a brilliant, amber-orange color. Smell luscious, complex toffee. Taste a round, supple entry, leading to a dry, expansive, medium body. Enjoy notes of caramel, nuts, and brown spices with a lengthy, enveloping finish. It’s an outrageously smooth and decadent bourbon.
