0 Comments · Wednesday, August 5, 2015
Lincoln Park Drive in the West End was rechristened Ezzard Charles Drive nearly 40 years ago, yet when one asks a typical Cincinnatian whether they are familiar with the man after which the street is named, a quizzical look almost certainly comes across their face before answering, “Uh, not really.”

ArtWorks Launches Mural Walking Tour

As Downtown and Over-the-Rhine continue to see a growth of walking tours related to the revived inner city's heritage (especially its brewing heritage) and architecture, a new one will soon be offered dedicated to its ever-growing collection of public murals. ArtWorks, which is responsible for many of those murals (including a just-finished one at Eighth and Main streets dedicated to Cincinnati-born Pop artist Tom Wesselmann), will launch the tours in October as part of its Mural (Celebration) Month. They will continue into November, and then take a break. Beginning in 2015, they'll run April through November. Reservations will be needed for the tours, which will run 90 minutes and cost $20 for adults. Artworks also is looking for volunteers to guide those tours. If you're interested in either, visit artworkscincinnati.org where information will be available soon. Bus tours are being discussed, too, once streetcar construction is completed.

"Allegro" Is the Ghost of Great Murals Past

1 Comment · Wednesday, February 12, 2014
Downtown, Over-the-Rhine and other city neighborhoods are being colorfully transformed by the mural program shepherded by ArtWorks. But a forgotten Downtown mural called “Allegro” — a ghost of murals past — deserves recognition as not just one of Cincinnati’s finest, but also as an enduring piece of public art, period.
