Perspectives

September 5, 2022–December 30, 2022

The Perspectives is a photo-based, mixed-media mural celebrating Black iconography, culture, expression, and joy. Produced in partnership by Mz. Icar, an anonymous, interdisciplinary art collective, and ArtWorks, this public artwork is informed by the collection of oral histories and archival photographic records from residents of Walnut Hills, a Cincinnati neighborhood with an incredibly rich Black history. The creation process includes neighborhood engagement and the employment of four local Youth Apprentices under the mentorship of both Mz. Icar and an ArtWorks Teaching Artist. This highly collaborative mural is a powerful record of Black voices and histories, past and present. The mural is located at 2346 Gilbert Avenue, acting as a prideful gateway into the Walnut Hills neighborhood.

Artists: Mz. Icar (anonymous collective), Four ArtWorks Youth Apprentices, One ArtWorks Teaching Artist
