Hamilton County has partnered with ArtWorks to produce a mural in the summer of 2023 that speaks to the history, progress, and enduring qualities of Cincinnati's historic Findlay Market area and market house. The mural design, which is currently in progress, will be the result of a months-long international Call to Artists that yielded interest from 136 artists located across the globe. The designer that is selected as the Call to Artists finalist will create a unique and site-specific design that celebrates the people and dynamic energy that have helped to make Findlay Market Ohio's oldest continuously operated public market. Apprentices on this project will support creating a new landmark for the Findlay Market area that aims to represent the neighborhood and its residents while also welcoming visitors and tourists.
