ArtWorks seeking mural sites for 2013

ArtWorks is accepting mural requests from neighborhoods, businesses, and organizations for 2013 and beyond.

The organization's mural program, created in partnership with the City of Cincinnati in 2007, seeks to beautify local neighborhoods through the production of public art. The murals are produced by professional artists who work with apprentice artists ages 14 to 21, all of whom are paid for their efforts.

Priority is given to mural locations that include the availability of a suitable wall, permission from the building or property owner, community support, and the commitment of a community liaison.

Although mural requests are accepted at any time, those wishing to have a mural painted in 2013 must submit their requests by December 1, 2012. Mural requests not granted will be kept on file for future consideration.

To date, 57 murals have been created in 32 Cincinnati neighborhoods and six nearby cities.
