Cincinnati Museum Center has installed an exhibit titled, You Are Here, to celebrate Cincinnati’s vibrant history. The center recruited ArtWorks to create a mural inside of the exhibit to sprinkle in some very Cincinnati-style art. We selected a mega-talented group of established and emerging artists, Rebecca Nava, Lizzy DuQuette and returning Youth Apprentices, Marin and Ella Emanuel, to create the work of art in spring 2020.
While COVID-19 momentarily interrupted the progress, the mural is finally complete. Check out a time-lapse video below and then head to the museum center to see it in person:
