Many thanks to ArtsWave and their generous supporters! #CincyArts

ArtWorks is elated to announce a renewal of the Sustaining Impact grant from ArtsWave for our 2021 season of Stronger Together! With this support of ArtsWave and their generous donors, ArtWorks can put creative young people and artists to work creating dynamic works of art this year!


Through gifts from tens of thousands of individuals and companies each year, ArtsWave funds and supports more than 100 arts projects and organizations through impact-based grants. With funding, services, and advocacy, ArtsWave fuels a more vibrant regional economy and connected community through the arts.

The ArtWorks team is grateful for this significant contribution to our mission of transforming people and places through investments in creativity. Our plans for the future season include several murals, Hero Design Company, and multimedia projects. More than 150 area youth will find employment in these projects being led by our gifted Teaching Artists, who are employed at a 1:5 ratio, providing hands-on powerful mentorship to these creative young people.
