Zach Robinson has a background in theater administration. He spent the last three years with Know Theatre of Cincinnati as the artistic and community relations manager. He brings programming and festival planning expertise to Pyramid Hill.
“I’m really excited to have the opportunity to create new events, and to re-contextualize and grow the events that we already have,” Robinson said.
Robinson started with Pyramid Hill on Feb. 1. He resides in Fairfield. His hobbies include gardening, writing and playing video games on Nintendo Switch. He has two cats named after pirates, Hawkins and Patchy.
As a theater administrator, one of his biggest jobs was producing Cincinnati’s Fringe Festival, which is a two-week festival of art, dance, visual art, theater art and music. Event planning and organizational skills are a few of the strengths he brings to his new role at Pyramid Hill. He’s excited to start planning for the Art & Music Festival and Journey Borealis.
“I’m excited to bring my expertise in event planning to these big events as well as working on creating smaller, new events that will eventually go out into the park,” Robinson said.
Pyramid Hill has served as the premier cultural tourist attraction in Butler County for several years. With 350-acres of land, over 80 outdoor, permanent collection sculptures and an Ancient Sculpture Museum that displays Greek, Roman, Etruscan, Syrian and Egyptian artifacts, Pyramid Hill attracts over 70,000 visitors annually.
