Established 1996

Mission ArtWorks transforms people and places through investments in creativity.

Serving Our Community The organization is a workforce development and job-training program where art is the vehicle that trains and employs local youth and professional talent to create art and community impact. ArtWorks’ Apprentice Program employs teens ages 14–21 to work alongside professional artists. Apprentices are hired through a competitive application process, and more than half come from Cincinnati’s most underserved and vulnerable neighborhoods. ArtWorks has hired more than 3,300 youth and 2,900 professional artists who have completed 12,000-plus public and private art projects. ArtWorks has also trained more than 630 creative entrepreneurs who contribute to Cincinnati’s economic growth.

When you support ArtWorks, you help give a teenager a first job, a child a superhero cape, a creative entrepreneur a chance to live out their dream. With your generosity, you can shape the future of our region.
