Downtown Cincinnati Incorporated has created an online database of public art that features the city's fountains, monuments, murals and architecture. It's all the things that DCI says make the streets of downtown an outdoor gallery on view 24/7.
The website also includes itineraries for five walking tours with a focus on specific artworks, shops and eateries along each route:
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.
A new study suggests there is a connection between the arts and civic engagement.
ArtsWave and Agenda 360 partnered for “Snapshot 2012: Arts Engagement in Greater Cincinnati.” It was a survey of the general population in the Greater Cincinnati area that for the first time provides baseline data on arts engagement in the region.
