A note about the pandemic's impact on our programming:

As a small artist-run nonprofit, we are keenly aware of public wellbeing and of the potential impact of the Novel Coronavirus on our friends, colleagues, students, and neighbors. Manifest believes in creativity, discipline, and optimism, and that these are essential especially in challenging times. With this we will find ways to serve the artists, students, and community members who rely on our programming as a source of inspiration and aspiration, even in a crisis like the one we now all face together. The Gallery has continued to operate, with a few modifications. Current and future exhibition and publication processes will continue. Submissions to our projects will continue to be accepted. Exhibits are currently planned to be produced on schedule with a couple of noted exceptions. We are making additional efforts to share images of exhibited works, installation shots, and VR walkthroughs via social media (see links below) during the foreseeable future to provide 'virtual access'. Artists are also reminded that all exhibited works will be featured in our large season-documenting publication, the Manifest Exhibition Annual once it is produced after the season ends. Manifest Drawing Center programming has been adjusted, with significant social distancing measures, hybrid online/in-person classes, and some online-only programs now offered.




Manifest's 17th season is funded in part by a grant from the Charles Moerlein Foundation, Fifth Third Bank, Trustee. This season's programming is also supported by an impact grant from ArtsWave, by a sustainability grant from the Ohio Arts Council, and through the generous contributions of individual supporters who care deeply about the visual arts.
