    ArtWorks and The Cincinnati Fine Arts Fund

    On Monday as part of a presentation on Cincinnati’s Fine Arts Fund I was fortunate enough to hear about an organization I knew little about and clearly didn’t fully appreciate.  The organization is called ArtWorks and they are doing amazing things to transform neighborhoods throughout Cincinnati.

    Founded in 1996, ArtWorks is a non-profit Cincinnati arts organization that connects artists of all ages with opportunities in the arts through inspiring apprenticeships, community partnerships, and public art.  Their vision is to be the leader in employing student and emerging artists to create art that enlivens the Greater Cincinnati community.

    The ArtWorks Summer Program hires teens aged 14 – 19 to work with professional artists to make innovative public art to enrich the Greater Cincinnati community.  ArtWorks’ newest program, MuralWorks, seeks to create stunning murals on buildings throughout Cincinnati to help beautify communities.  You’ve probably seen some of their stunning handiwork around town.  It just blows my mind.

    My wife and I are both supporters of Cincinnati’s Fine Arts Fund, largely due to amazing programs like ArtWorks that seek to make art accessible to everyone throughout the Cincinnati area.  Makes you feel very proud to live and work in Cincinnati.  Please try to donate this year if you can.  To learn more about the Fine Arts Fund and Artworks please click on the links below.
