afloat: an ohio river way of life

Inspired by the life, art, writing and environmentalism of Harlan Hubbard (1900-1988), several museums, galleries and academic institutions have coordinated in focusing in the year 2019 on the Ohio River.  The shared purpose of this mutually supportive group is to call attention to the River, its beauty, needs, and unmet potential.
