Savoring the magic of BLINK 2022: Thank you, Cincinnati!

 

We’re still recuperating and buzzing from the energy of BLINK 2022. Words can’t express our gratitude to so many folks—the artists, partners, sponsors, locals, visitors, vendors…the list goes on. We want to take a moment to highlight everyone who helped the magic of ArtWorks shine during the unforgettable festival. When they say it takes a village, this is what we mean⬇️!!
