Tunnel Tour

Check out our favorite photos from the Tunnel Tours:

The MeSseD Tunnel Tour is an immersive comic book experience installed in the subterranean basement of Union Hall in May and June of 2018. The exhibit, based on the Cincinnati-born comic MeSseD, artfully meshes sewer management and science fiction, turning the solitary experience of reading a comic book into a social “moment” in which people will experience the comic together in a real tunnel.

When: May 11 - June 16

Thursday, June 14 6-9 p.m. $6 each, youth $4 each

Saturday, June 16 11 am-2 p.m. $6 each, youth $4 each
