Artists must submit a proposal with desired location, drawings, and materials by March 15, 2021. Artists will select a location on the grounds to create a site specific art installation. (Date tbd) Art will be created outdoors at Heritage Acres using 100% natural materials. No recyclables or compostables. Think of Andy Goldsworthy inspired art.

About Heritage Acres Memorial Sanctuary
Heritage Acres Memorial Sanctuary is the first and only dedicated natural burial ground in the Cincinnati area. We are here to provide a “green burial” alternative for the Tri-State while offering compassionate care to individuals and families as they grieve and process the transitions of life and death. We also offer educational and recreational opportunities for the public to enjoy the beauty and wonder of nature.
Our commitment to creating a nature preserve where people may be laid to rest naturally calls us to compassion both for the earth, and for our fellow human beings. By centering environmental stewardship in our end-of-life choices, we can leave a legacy for future generations by protecting land from development, preserving habitats and ecosystems, and allowing our bodies to return naturally to the earth.
