ArtWorks, in partnership with the Ludlow Redevelopment Committee (LRC), a joint committee of Clifton Town Meeting and Clifton Business and Professional Association is excited to announce plans for a series of permanent public art installations along the Ludlow Avenue business district in Cincinnati’s Clifton neighborhood.
Ludlow Avenue Art Carpets are planned for at least six locations along Ludlow Avenue between Clifton and Middleton Avenues. Together the various installations will celebrate, enliven and reveal the character and experience of Ludlow Avenue. It is the eclectic nature, rich history and evolving identity of Clifton that this public art project hopes to capture and reveal to residents and visitors alike.
