With BLINK approximately one week away, the festival’s organizers have released an interactive installation map.
BLINK was last experienced by over 1.3 million people in 2019 across Cincinnati and Covington. It returns this year for October 13-16. The event features 101 installations, and will span over 30 city blocks, from McMicken Avenue in Cincinnati to 7th Street in Covington.
“We’re so excited to share BLINK with the Cincinnati region,” said Justin Brookhart, executive director of BLINK. “The collaborations with so many artists and individuals within the community make BLINK truly a nowhere else experience.”
The map features a variety of projects, light installations, lighting effects, music and murals from local, national and international artists. Food truck vendors will be placed throughout the event. Orginalitees, Black Owned, Limelight Store, and Let’s Glow Crazy will be available to purchase merchandise and souvenirs. The BLINK parade route is scheduled to be announced later this week.
“After months of organizing, seeing BLINK officially take shape is amazing,” said Andrew Salzbrun, managing partner of AGAR, and Executive Partner of BLINK. “Over the next 10 days Cincinnati and Covington will begin to see artists transforming familiar places and bringing their installations to life.”
