The Hands that Built Our City

In Partnership with the City of Cincinnati & Duke Energy Convention Center. The Duke Energy Convention Center welcomes thousands of visitors each year and wants them all to know they’re in Cincinnati, a historically creative and industrious town. To continue their longtime support of the arts, they partnered with ArtWorks to create this colorful mural, which highlights the hands of the workers featured in the famous Union Terminal mosaic murals by Winold Reiss, and was painted to mimic the look of real tile. The addition of new hands, those of two convention center employees and one ArtWorks youth Apprentice, nod to Cincinnati’s vibrant future.
