KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE COMMUNITY PRESS Artists create mural for West Price Hill ArtWorks project going up on pet hospital By Kurt Backscheider Blake Winans, a Price Hill resident and Western Hills University High School graduate, helps paint a mural on the side of the Covedale Pet Hospital as part of the 2012 ArtWorks Apprentice Program. KURT BACKSCHEIDER/THE A group of young artists is hard at work this summer creating a mural for folks to enjoy in West Price Hill. For the past few weeks a team of eight young people, many of whom are from the West Side, have been painting a mural on the side of the Covedale Pet Hospital as part of the 2012 ArtWorks Apprentice Program. Each summer the nonprofit organization hires young people to work with professional artists to make innovative public art to enrich communities throughout Cincinnati. The mural at the Covedale Pet Hospital is the program’s first in West Price Hill. “It’s been a fun project,” COMMUNITY said Jamie Schorsch, an Oak Hills High School art teacher who is serving as the lead artist for the West Price Hill mural. “Everyone has worked really well together.” She said the mural, which stretches 121 feet long, was designed to reflect the history of the neighborhood and also show how the community has transitioned over the years. Schorsch met with community leaders to find out what they wanted in the mural, and she and the teen artists developed a design incorporating themes the community wanted. Familiar neighborhood landmarks like the Covedale theater’s beacon tower, the stone arches at Rapid Run Park and elements of art deco architecture can be seen in the mural, she said.
