The University of Cincinnati invites family, friends and neighbors to celebrate its Bicentennial at UC Community Day on Saturday, April 6. This free event kicks off at 8:30 a.m. and features special academic experiences, family-friendly activities, health screenings and entertainment.

The day will culminate with MOMENTUM, a mind-bending, projection-mapping light show. This remarkable display of art and motion is the creation of Brave Berlin, the force behind Lumenocity and BLINK. Activities begin at 7:30 p.m., the show starts at sunset (8:06 p.m.) and the continuous loops of the show end at 9:30 p.m.

MOMENTUM will take place on the east façade of McMicken Hall facing McMicken Commons. Live music will be provided by The Touchables. There also will be giveaways, games and food available for purchase.

“I’m looking forward to celebrating 200 years of UC spirit and pride with my fellow Bearcats and friends,” said UC President Neville G. Pinto. “Community Day is an opportunity to observe our university’s strong relationship with our city and citizens, and to show our appreciation of their support.”
