A Project by ArtWorks
Cincinnati Paints by Numbers
ArtWorks is introducing a new public art concept this year called Cincinnati Paints by Numbers! This mural project provides the public an opportunity to purchase a ticket to paint alongside an ArtWorks professional artist and Youth Apprentice team, while gaining a more in-depth understanding of how we transform people and places through investments in creativity.
Our first inaugural theme is Cincinnati’s beloved Fiona and her home, the Cincinnati Zoo!

Monday, April 9 – Monday, May 7
Phase II: Public voting on the final 5 designs. Time slot selection begins on Friday, May 25.

Call for Artistic Proposals
ArtWorks is seeking mural design concepts for our first ever Cincinnati Paints by Numbers project. Designs should feature or be inspired by our 2018 theme and partner, Fiona and the Cincinnati Zoo.
Artists are invited to submit up to three (3) fully rendered, full color designs for jury and public consideration. Designs must be able to be translated by a public audience (non-professional painters), and successful designs may include flat areas of color or be graphic in nature. Designs should be created with the specific project site and dimensions in mind. All conceptual sketches are to be preliminary and should be able to evolve and transform based on jury input. ArtWorks reserves the right to exclude any submissions from the jury and public review process as deemed necessary.
All designs must be submitted by Monday, May 7th at 12AM
