Murals

Increasing community pride and arts engagement across all Cincinnati neighborhoods.

What started as a series of small interventions in one neighborhood has grown into a citywide initiative to introduce high-impact, low-cost artwork to the public. Murals provide beautiful works of art for all people to enjoy.  A formerly empty wall transformed with new imagery creates a space that people want to visit, live by and take care of. Diverse and vibrant paintings encourage thought and engage with passersby while also demonstrating the economic potential of an area. 

Long-neglected spots impacted by graffiti and overgrowth are transformed into dynamic pieces of art. Our team works primarily with local artists and volunteers to provide public artwork to the community. In communities that may experience more negative influences murals can inspire more positive use of public spaces. 

Over 40 murals have been completed in the past 10 years, and we're looking forward to completing many more!
