BLINK, the nation’s largest event of its kind, featuring large-scale projection mapping, murals, urban artscapes, media light, interactive art and diverse entertainment, will be illuminated by ArtsWave when it again lights Cincinnati, October 10-13, 2019. ArtsWave, the nonprofit planner, promoter and fundraiser of the arts throughout the Greater Cincinnati region will serve as presenting sponsor for BLINK.
“ArtsWave is delighted to take a major role in the 2019 return of BLINK. With the help of tens of thousands of donors every year, we’ve been investing in Cincinnati’s arts, creativity and innovation for decades,” says Alecia Kintner, ArtsWave president & CEO. “The ArtsWave Campaign forms the foundation for the quality and variety of cultural experiences that our region enjoys today, including events like BLINK that connect and enliven our community through the arts.”
Additionally, BLINK will expand into Covington, Kentucky.
“How do you make the biggest event of its kind in the nation even bigger? Well, we decided to literally make it even bigger,” said Dan Reynolds, owner & partner of Brave Berlin, one of the producers of BLINK. “We’re so flippin’ excited to share that BLINK, in October of 2019, will expand to include a new zone in Northern Kentucky. We’re still working out many of the details, but we can tell you that BLINK will wind from our beautiful Roebling Bridge to Seventh and Madison in Covington. How cool is that?”
“BLINK continues to put Cincinnati on the global map as a creative, innovative and inclusive future city,” added Jill P. Meyer, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber. “Cincinnati innovates through collaboration and we continue to look for partnerships with businesses that are committed to growing the vibrancy of our region.”
