A new name and new venue for 2019!
In honor of Building Value’s 15th Anniversary, our annual event is becoming AMORE (Art Made of Reusable Elements). Make plans to join us on April 25 at Rhinegeist.
Thank you for raising $75,000 in 2018!
This evening celebrated sustainability with unique live entertainment, local bites and brews, and a wide variety of creatively re-purposed furniture and home décor.

Entertainment included a live DJ and a return of the Lip Sync Battles, as well as a Living Statue, origami artists, award-winning magician Brett Sears (who blew people’s minds last year), and jugglers from Cincinnati Circus. Local foods were delicious, including Babushka Pierogies, Django Western Taco, Ruth’s Parkside Cafe, and more!
And of course, the Designer Challenge, Cincinnati’s craziest and craftiest auction! Professional and amateur artists celebrate the beauty of second changes by creating something new out of salvaged materials.
Special thanks to our ReUse-apalooza Event Chair: Barbara Scull, President, The Alleen Company.
