ArtWorks Box Truck Carnival
The region’s most creative minds transform ordinary box trucks into engaging, exciting, and whimsical “carnival booths” for the third annual ArtWorks Box Truck Carnival.
On Saturday afternoon from noon to 4 pm, families and people of all ages can frolic between ArtWorks Box Trucks, watch ArtWorks youth Apprentices and professional artists turn cars into moving masterpieces, and enjoy stage performances by the School of Rock Mason and other upbeat family-friendly bands. Cincinnati Ballet’s CBII (Second Company) will be performing audience-interactive excerpts from the wild ballet Carnival of Animals throughout the afternoon. Plus, local food vendors will be open and ready to dish up tasty lunches.
ArtWorks’ ArtCars project employs local youth and professional artists to transform cars, trucks, and vans into mobile masterpieces. Started in 2010 as part of Streetscapes: A Street Painting Festival in Clifton, ArtWorks ArtCars is moving to Over-the-Rhine this year to be part of the MidPoint Midway at MidPoint Music Festival. This year, 25 ArtWorks youth Apprentices and professional artists working in teams will collaborate with car owners to give five ordinary rides a creative new look. To date, ArtWorks has transformed 19 cars. Find out how to Art-Your-Ride at ArtWorksCincinnati.org.
ArtWorks is an award-winning non-profit that employs and trains local youth and talent to create art and community impact through Public Art, ArtRx and Creative Enterprise programs. ArtWorks is generously funded by many community supporters including the City of Cincinnati, the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./US Bank Foundation, ArtsWave, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Ohio Arts Council. To learn more or to support ArtWorks, visit ArtWorksCincinnati.org.
