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⬇️!!

About ArtWorks

Since 1996, ArtWorks has collaborated with community organizations and residents, businesses, governments, foundations, and nonprofits to build creative works of art that built the Greater Cincinnati region’s global reputation as an arts destination. ArtWorks has employed and trained over 3,500 professional artists and 4,000 youth, ages 14 – 24. We invest in our creative economy by creating jobs that support local talent, pairing professional artists to inspire and mentor diverse teams of youth, helping them build 21st-century career-readiness skills. Over the past 26 years, this collaborative approach has created a citywide gallery with more than 14,000 public and private art projects, including more than 250 permanent outdoor murals.
