Secret ArtWorks from The Banks was an evening unlike any other ever experienced by the Queen City! Cincinnati is such a hub of creative talent, which was on full display at Secret ArtWorks. Thanks to the generosity of 800 Artists, we broke records in the amounts of Secret Works of Arts we had for the event!
We strive to create a region where everyone can experience incredible art. Secret ArtWorks highlighted the creativity and welcomed everyone to celebrate it with open arms. It wouldn’t have been Secret ArtWorks from The Banks without the love and support of the entire Cincinnati community. We were overwhelmed by the support of so many for this event. We cannot wait until next year. And remember, Be The Secret!
We danced the night away thanks to AfroChine and DJ Pillo. Enjoyed laughs and smiles from Penny Tration. We’re entranced by the body painted pink panthers created by Aryn Fox. We were entranced by the videos from C. Jacqueline Wood. And recorded the memories forever thanks to the photobooth by Floyd Johnson of OATW.
