Modern Day Workers Get Their Mural
Two new exhibits at the Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts pay tribute to the monumental "Worker Murals" of Cincinnati's Union Terminal. The artist, Winold Reiss, visited Cincinnati factories and photographed real workers for his mosaics in the 1930s. Now, artists Matt Lynch and Curtis Goldstein visit modern day factories and depict women and men at work for their series of mosaics inspired by Winold Reiss.
Their exhibit, "Work/Surface", is on display at the Weston Art Gallery through August 26. Lynch and Goldstein will give a gallery talk Thursday, June 28 at 7pm. Admission is free. Children can meet the artists and do an art project designed with the exhibit in mind at Families Create! on July 14.
