Connected Through the Generations

In celebration of their 150th anniversary, YWCA Greater Cincinnati partnered with ArtWorks to create a large-scale mural honoring this major milestone. Lead Teaching Artist Rebecca Nava, Teaching Artists Mark Hanavan and Prince Lang, led a team of 12 Youth Apprentices to paint this inspiring mural. Designed by Chicago-based artist and designer Molly Costello, this mural celebrates the YWCA’s mission and legacy to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Characters are portrayed working together to pursue a more equitable and just world for the beneļ¬t and inclusion of all people. The design nods to the work of women and minority leaders throughout history, and seeks to inspire and empower viewers of all ages, ethnicities, and gender identities, today.
