Painting the Town
With summer approaching, scaffolding begins to rise as artists make plans to add to the number of murals in our city. We salute ArtWorks Cincinnati for commissioning new murals for the summer of 2015 and providing jobs for students and professional artists alike. I love that these murals help to invoke pride in our city and spark joy in our daily commute. Some of our favorites are featured below. Mackenzie, part of our team at Houston Design Studios, worked on the Singing Mural in 2011. She was proud to be a part of an organization that strives to positively transform a community through artistic collaboration. We’ll be on the lookout for hard hats and flying paintbrushes!
