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.

From now through June 27, you may be approached on the street — or anywhere public — by a photographer and asked to physically interact with a nearby stranger as if you two were closely acquainted.   

"Allegro" Is the Ghost of Great Murals Past

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.  

If These Walls Could Talk

Bar/restaurant mural captured the ’80s — bad styles and good times

Before Burger Madness, there was mural madness at Arthur’s, the Hyde Park restaurant/bar. From 1981 to 1992, Jerry Dowling painted caricatures of 142 regulars on a 44-foot wall. The characters are still there — on the mural, anyway — but the character has changed.  

'Getting Outside of Myself'

How ArtWorks trains the next generation of local artists

I’ve always been able to find art in Cincinnati. From seeing the paintings created by an art class at SCPA, where I’m currently a senior, to being inspired by exhibits at the Cincinnati Art Museum or the Contemporary Arts Center, it’s been fairly easy to nourish my passion for art in my hometown.
