Art Gallery Collected Works
By Our Favorite Artists

Located just off the lobby, the Summit’s 5,800-square-foot art gallery showcases rotating exhibitions of contemporary works by national and regional artists as well as exhibitions featuring selections from private regional collections. Thoughtfully curated, the shows change every 4 months and are celebrated with an opening reception. We invite you to tour the gallery during your stay, and to join us for an opening event.

The Summit Hotel Artist Residency Program (SHARP)


Introducing The Maidens of the Cosmic Body Running, The Summit Hotel's 2022 Artists in Residence (comprised of Denise Burge, Lisa Siders, and Jenny Ustick). The Maidens’ year-long residency at the Summit takes place in conjunction with FotoFocus, a biennial celebration of photography, film, and lens-based art happening this October throughout Greater Cincinnati. Captured through photography and immersive media, their project centers on the idea of the hotel as a romantic site, a place to fantasize about the confluence of the rivers nearby.   Follow The Maidens’ progress on Instagram and check for updates on Better Close Than Never.
