Greater Cincinnati is home to a thriving arts community and CET has been a part of that community for more than 55 years. Cincinnati’s art scene ranges from the stage, to museums and galleries featuring local, regional, national and international talent. Cincinnati also offers some of the finest arts education opportunities in the region.
CET celebrates and shares the talents among us through its programs, produced and distributed locally and nationally; CET Express, a weekly online series dedicated to the arts; creation of Speak Up for The Arts, a unique arts advocacy toolkit; the launch of CET Arts, one of the first local 24-hour cultural channels of its kind in the country and much more.
