FOUND: Celebrating the Holidays in Cincinnati

FOUND is a collaborative project between ArtWorks, AGAR, 3CDC, Downtown Cincinnati Inc. and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation to celebrate the holiday season. The month-long festivities will include spirited window displays in shops across OTR and Downtown Cincinnati, scavenger hunts, and holiday events.

FOUND CINCINNATI from Pixaura Digital Marketing on Vimeo.

The decorated window spaces or, Windows of Wonder, have been designed and executed by ArtWorks’ favorites such as Jonesy, Golden Brown Enterprizes, and Yellow Ochre Designs spanning from Findlay Market down to the Banks. Another activity up FOUND’s sleeve is to Find the Key Losantiville, Cincinnati’s largest scavenger hunt. Participants can win $2,000 for their favorite nonprofit and $2,000 for themself. Each week, one winner will receive $250 if they are the first person to solve and submit answers to all four riddles released via Facebook messenger.

Additional partners in this experience include the Over-the-Rhine Chamber of Commerce, The Banks, Findlay Market, and the Greater Cincinnati & Northern Kentucky African American Chamber of Commerce.
