9:45 AM: Museum Tour
Join us on a guided tour of the largest ever exhibit of African American quilts, And Still We Rise: Race, Culture, and Visual Conversations, now on display at the Freedom Center.
The exhibit narrates 400 years of the African American experience, telling the stories of freedom’s greatest heroes—from Frederick Douglass to astronaut Mae Jemison to Barack Obama— through 85 quilts.
Even if you’re not a regular visitor to the local museums, you won’t want to miss the spectacular handiwork of the very talented quilters from the international group of artists in the Women of Color Quilters Network!

8:30 AM to 5:00 PM: Book Giveaway
While there are plenty of novels that reward rereading, a good library always has the latest titles in stock, too.
To keep our own collection up-to-date, the Library Committee regularly cleans out the shelves of the Deupree House library. And residents have a chance to pick through the volumes as the library makes room for new additions.
Thursday, August 21
5:00 PM: Cocktail Hour
Senior life can get busy when you’re part of an active retirement community. With all of the events going on in Deupree House and in the Cincinnati community, it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle. Every once and a while, it’s nice to have a quiet evening to catch up with friends.
To help our busy community stay connected, Deupree House hosts regular Cocktail Party where residents can get together with friends and neighbors for a few drinks before dinner.

7:30 PM: Is There A Doc In the House?
In August’s addition of our regular health discussions, we’ll be welcoming Dr. Magdalena Kerschner from the Advanced Pain and Spine Institute. Dr. Kerschner will be sharing about methods of managing chronic pain—especially through the use of minimally invasive procedures.

9:45 AM: Museum Tour
Many locals are well-aware that Cincinnati was at the center of both the brewing and pottery-making tradition in the US—the revived Over-the-Rhine neighborhood and Rookwood Pottery Company are a visible testament to that. But not many residents are aware of the Queen City’s role in the production and trade of luxury silver wares.
But the Art Museum’s latest exhibition, “Cincinnati Silver: 1788-1940,” celebrates that heritage.
This exhibition showcases a dazzling array of silver, ranging from elegantly wrought soup tureens to tea sets in styles that span from the Neoclassical to Art Deco periods. Supplemented by a few key loans, the works are drawn primarily from the Cincinnati Art Museum’s own collection of local Silver— which has quadrupled in size over the last decade!
