ArtWorks has lots of exciting projects planned for this summer’s mural program.
Work is already underway to restore the Homage to Cincinnatius mural on the Kroger headquarters at Vine Street and Central Parkway. ArtWorks is coordinating the restoration with the mural’s original artist, Richard Haas, and the Thomas Melvin Studio.
Because of the swing-scaffolding that will be used on the seven-story mural, professional local artists have been hired to complete the project. ArtWorks apprentices, who usually paint the summer murals, will instead work with local filmmaker Lauren Pray on a documentary about the restoration project.
