New public art piece at convention center

Jun 21, 2013

Cincinnati’s Duke Energy Convention Center is about to receive a brand new public art installation, compliments of ArtWorks and local artist Brenda Tarbell. As Jane Durrell learns from the artist and ArtWorks apprentice Susan Romer, the piece is entitled Buds, Blossoms, Branches, Boughs for the Queen and is an homage to local flora. The piece will be officially dedicated on July 10.

ArtWorks is hiring artists and teenagers and putting up scaffolding in preparation for beginning work on ten murals.

The arts organization plans to hire at least 110 apprentices to work on the murals all around town.

Here's a preview about each of this summer's mural projects:

If you've always wanted to own one of the pigs from the Big Pig Gig, your opportunity has arrived.  Eleven of the fiberglass pigs created for the event this summer go up for auction today.
