Block by block, installations from global artists promise to light up Cincinnati.
What’s more unifying than art? Nothing, says BLINK, an event that will bring together creative minds from across the globe for four days of exhibition in Cincinnati. Considered one of the largest light, art and projection-mapping events in the world, BLINK will feature a mix of murals, urban artscapes, interactive art and large-scale projection-mapping installations, spanning 20 city blocks from the Ohio River to Over-the-Rhine.
The whole idea
is to shift your perspective.
Among the 70-some exhibits is LPK’s takeover of historic Piatt Park—the front yard of our global headquarters—featuring a mix of light, sculptures and illustration. Entitled The Seen & Unseen, the piece invites visitors to discover “hidden worlds” on their own terms—uncovering interconnections in places that typically feel entirely disparate.
“We wanted to create the world that lives beneath our world,” says Eric Sillies, Design Director at LPK, who helped lead the creation of a 90-foot mural along the park’s grounds. “The whole idea is to shift your perspective, as if there is something going on beneath the ground that we’ve been unaware of—until now.”
BLINK’s roster of participants includes renowned artists from Sydney, London and New York City, as well as jury-selected exhibitors like LPK. The event kicks off with a parade on October 12, and concludes on October 15.
