New Fiona mural painting begins this week

Cincinnati Zoo’s Thane Maynard was among the first to paint the “Cincinnati Paints by Numbers: Fiona” mural at Race & Ninth Streets.

The first brush strokes of the “Cincinnati Paints by Numbers: Fiona” mural were taken by Thane Maynard of the Cincinnati Zoo and his colleagues along with ArtWorks apprentices and artists.

“Cincinnati Paints by Numbers: Fiona,”is located at 910 Race Street, downtown. This summer, ArtWorks launched a new series, Cincinnati Paints by Numbers, giving the general public the chance to buy a ticket and paint alongside ArtWorks Teaching Artists and Youth Apprentices. Through a call-to-artists contest, the winning mural design chosen by pubic vote is by artist Lucie Rice.  

General public encouraged to buy tickets to paint on the Fiona mural. Tickets can be purchased at this website.
