C A M P G R O U N D, an ArtWorks Mural

October 15, 2014 to April 15, 2016

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 – each installation will be displayed for a period of 18 months, each featureing the work of a different artist working in collaboration with ArtWorks Youth Apprentices..

 

C A M P G R O U N D, the first Art Museum installation, evokes a billboard one may still discover along a country highway. It advertises with the familiar vacation icons of tire swings and sparking campfires. The animated sign promises outdoor escape and primitive comfort against the massive holdings and complexities of civilization. The promise, however, hints at its own future of being unfulfilled as neon displaces “nature” and its white lines outline an artificial landscape.
