Meet Jonathan Queen, the artist behind Carol Ann's Carousel


Jonathan Queen is the artist behind the unique animals found in the just-opened Carol Ann’s Carousel in Smale Riverfront Park along the Ohio River.


Rick Pender talks with the artist about how he got involved with the carousel, his use of local landmarks and architecture in the designs and how you can see the process of his work in an exhibit at the Taft Museum of Art. There’s also a fascinating video about the creation of the carousel you can see here.
