ArtWorks and the Cincinnati Art Museum are partnering to develop and produce a rotating program of temporary works of art installed on the west-facing façade of the French Wing at the Cincinnati Art Museum. The goal of the project is to showcase contemporary art, engage local community members, and provide meaningful employment and development for ArtWorks youth Apprentices. This will be the inaugural installation for an ongoing project partnership between ArtWorks and the Art Museum – with public art works rotating every 2-4 years on the façade of the Museum.
For the first installation, C A M P G R O U N D, Cincinnati artist Anthony Luensman will be commissioned to create a series of neon works. To help build community knowledge and support for the design, Luensman will work with 1 Teaching Assistant and 8 ArtWorks Apprentices for approximately 6 weeks in the summer of 2014 to create an extensive community engagement strategy. On view for approximately 18 months, this dynamic work will be visible not only to Art Museum patrons, but also to those at a distance, including from interstate 71. Luensman, a well-regarded Cincinnati artist and instructor at the Art Academy of Cincinnati, has exhibited internationally and was an Efroymson Contemporary Arts Fellow (2008) and Ohio Arts Council Artist Fellow (2004.)
