LA in Cinty*

Chicken Corner set foot in Cincinnati for the first time in her life last weekend. It's an amazing city. While I was there I also had the fortune to visit a Zaha Hadid building for the first time. It's the Contemporary Arts Center and massively elegant, made of masculine materials and colors, feminized in delicate massing. Walk into the lobby, and what do you see? Andre the Giant -- in a huge Shepard Fairey wall, some of the pieces of which will be familiar to Echo Park pedestrians (even as they've been de-politicized and de-California-ized). A little bit of home near the Ohio River.


*Cincinnati for short.
