Once among the most polluted bodies of water in the U.S., Mill Creek has drastically shifted from the past 50 years of conservation efforts. Makateewah Dreamscape highlights artists who honor the water’s history and those with new visions for the valley’s community and connection with nature.
Makateewah Dreamscape is part of the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial. Now in its sixth iteration, the 2022 FotoFocus Biennial encompasses more than 100 projects at Participating Venues across Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky, Dayton, and Columbus, and features more than 600 artists, curators, and participants—the largest of its kind in America.

Northside Studio + Gallery

Cincinnati OH 45223

Exhibition continues through November 24, 2022
