2008 Ohio Historic Preservation Office Award Recipients

Public Education and Awareness Award to Voyager Media Group for Sacred Spaces, a documentary on Cincinnati's churches, temples, and mosques.

Sacred Spaces, a one-hour documentary about Cincinnatiís churches, temples, and mosques, reveals how they came to be built, their role in local history, the beauty of their designs, and their place in the community. The sanctuaries depicted reflect a diversity of religions and denominations and portray cultural, social, and political trends in Greater Cincinnati from its founding to the present. Sacred Spaces takes a chronological approach, combining interviews of key historians, architects, and religious leaders with rare archival images and a soundtrack of choral and cultural music. Taped in High Definition to showcase the full beauty, colors, and detail of these magnificent places, Sacred Spaces premiered on Cincinnati Educational Television on March 2, 2008, and has been aired repeatedly. Its audience is amplified by a website with a program outline, profiles, and links; transcripts of interviews; and a long list of resources for further study. Sacred Spaces was made possible through gifts and grants from Carl H. Lindner; the Ohio Humanities Council; the Josephine S. Russell Charitable Trust; The Fine Arts Fund; GBBN Architects; and the support of Cincinnati Educational Television and Voyager Media Group, a nonprofit organization dedicated to creating high-quality public media projects about culture, art, history, and science.
