FAQS About the Event
Why did we decide to partner with Brave Berlin on this project?
Looking to completely transform LIVE! on CET, Brave Berlin, the creators of Lumenocity and BLINK were invited to help us ‘sing’ our own song. This partnership was made possible by a generous donation from The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile Foundation. With their help, we will offer an experience that will tell our story, past, present and future.
What is the image mapping show?
This mural is a fantastic ode to the Queen City’s rich arts and cultural legacy. Designed by nationally-renowned artist and Cincinnati resident, C.F. Payne, this cast of characters represents the community coming together in celebration of the arts. What song will they be singing? A selection that will be meaningful to our honoree — Dr. O’dell Owens!
