CROWN Mural Dedication


You’re invited to the dedication of the CROWN Mural! This massive new mural on Great American Ball Park was installed by a collaborative partnership between Tri-State Trails, the CROWN Capital Campaign, ArtWorks, Cincinnati Reds, and Duke Energy to celebrate the many gems in the Queen City’s CROWN.

The new mural aims to celebrate the various gems in the Queen City’s CROWN. Preliminary work on the mural began in August featuring a team of ArtWorks’ youth apprentices.  The 165-foot piece of public art wraps around the corner of Joe Nuxhall Way and Mehring Way on a wall between the Reds Hall of Fame and Smale Riverfront Park.

The design came from local artist L.D. Nehls. Her goal was to create a piece thats sparks “excitement, curiosity and discovery” of notable Cincinnati landmarks along the planned 34-mile CROWN (Cincinnati Riding or Walking Network) trail.  It features people of different ages doing things like riding a bike or skateboarding.

Nehls hopes the work encourages visitors and residents to want to learn more about Cincinnati and to celebrate how the urban trail loop will connect residents to amenities and resources without needing to use a car.

Funding for the mural included a $30,000 grant from the Duke Energy Foundation as well as $25,000 from the City of Cincinnati’s Youth to Work program.  Through Youth to Work, ArtWorks employed a team of local young artists, 14 to 21, to work on the project.
