Greater Cincinnati Foundation Partners with BLINK
CINCINNATI (October 1, 2022) — Greater Cincinnati Foundation (GCF) is pleased to partner with BLINK and other organizations to bring the largest mural in Ohio to Cincinnati, marking the city’s deep-rooted commitment to public art and preserving history.
Tristan Eaton, an iconic multidisciplinary artist, is creating this long-lasting mural that will depict some of the city’s richest history. Eaton, a veritable superstar in the world of public art, will be taking his signature collaging and layering style to new heights–literally–weaving even minute details into the image to create a comprehensive tableau.
Having completed murals around the globe, Eaton is known for thoughtful research and breathtaking lasting works including his recent mural in Deep Ellum, which layered both well-known and obscure details within a beautiful portrait. Bringing his impressive dedication to research and acute awareness of cultural significance, Eaton is expected to add an exciting piece to the city’s vibrant mural program and offer an impactful experience during BLINK.
“It’s exciting to bring to life the largest mural in Ohio, connecting people across the region through public art,” said Ellen Katz, President & CEO of GCF. “GCF’s mission is aligned with BLINK’s, and together we are building a future of opportunity and hope for our region – where residents are united, enlightened, and feel a sense of belonging.”
