The Center is a unique event space located in the heart of downtown Cincinnati. The dramatic and expansive environment enables customization and creative arrangement options, making it the perfect place to meet, greet, play and party downtown.
The Center is located in the Mercantile Building in the heart of downtown Cincinnati, Ohio. The building opened in 1970 and was designed by Chicago architect Harry Weese, perhaps best known for designing the Metro stations in Washington, D.C. The space was initially occupied by the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) and at the time, was the largest exhibition venue devoted to contemporary art in the United States. Prior to moving to the Lois & Richard Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art in 2003, the CAC featured work by noteworthy artists such as Robert Morris, Jennifer Bartlett and Maya Angelou.
Until recently, the space formerly known as the Contemporary Arts Center has remained vacant. Recognizing the need for a unique venue in downtown Cincinnati, Mercantile Center worked with Cincinnati designers to reinvent the building’s identity as The Center.
The Center offers a unique space, with its central location and dramatic setting; it provides the perfect atmosphere to create an enjoyable and memorable event!
