More about Grave 2018:

Grave 2018 includes a pop-up exhibition curated by the founders of Project Project, Joel Damon and Josh Powell, featuring artists of all disciplines who have participated in one or more of OCI’s programs. The event will also include performances, local food and drink, and maybe an announcement or two... Werewolves are welcome and costumes encouraged!

Grave 2018 is a celebration of the past 10 years, as well as OCI’s public re-commitment to our mission and goals for the community. It is also an opportunity for our friends and supporters to commit to the future with us. Artists help build the cultural foundation of our communities, and supporting them means supporting a more vibrant, livable city.
About the venue: The 40th Street Theatre opened in the early 1900s as a vaudeville theatre, transitioning to a motion picture theatre in 1916. After that it hosted a variety of local businesses, like Martin’s Pastry and a carpet store. Current owner John Hargiss, of Hargiss Stringed Instruments, and girlfriend Mary Thorsteinson have renovated the space back to its former glory, and are working to put on the finishing touches. They have used mostly repurposed materials from other historic buildings around town and the Habitat ReStore.
