Wonder-lit, art-fueled and awe-inspiring, BLINK is a unique and innovative community event that will reach beyond Cincinnati to a national and international audience.
Running October 12 – October 15, BLINK Future City will be light, street art, murals, and live performance. It will spread across twenty blocks of Cincinnati; rising up from The Banks, stretching through Downtown and Over-the-Rhine to historic Findlay Market, reimagining our city as a stage.
BLINK will spotlight emerging and renowned artists from around the globe, bringing them to Cincinnati to collaborate with the talented creatives who call this city home. This is an invitation—a challenge, perhaps—to join the collaboration and “plug in”.
BLINK will take advantage of our architecture and our history. Our buildings will be painted with light through projection mapping. Murals will spark dialogue and the street installations will leave you in awe. We will see our city in a way we never have before. Immersive and innovative, educational and engaging, BLINK will be a regional, national, and international draw for visitors to Cincinnati. It will be brilliant. And free.
