09/13/2020

In celebration of their 150th anniversary, YWCA Greater Cincinnati partnered with ArtWorks Cincinnati to create a large-scale mural honoring this major milestone. Lead Teaching Artist Rebecca Nava, Teaching Artists Mark Hanavan (#21cElevate alumni) and Prince Lang, led a team of 12 Youth Apprentices to paint this inspiring mural. Designed by Chicago-based artist and designer Molly Costello Art & Design, this mural celebrates the YWCA’s mission and legacy to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, justice, freedom and dignity for all. Characters are portrayed working together to pursue a more equitable and just world for the benefit and inclusion of all people. The design nods to the work of women and minority leaders throughout history, and seeks to inspire and empower viewers of all ages, ethnicities, and gender identities, today.

Find the 'Connected Through the Generations' mural at 225 W. Court Street.

09/04/2020

Athi-Patra Ruga’s Proposed Model of François Benga Monument was created in homage to an early 20th-century icon of queer culture, this work belongs to the artist’s pantheon of heroes and queens that reflect African beauty and resistance. François “Féral” Benga (1906-1957) was a renowned Senegalese dancer who performed alongside Josephine Baker at the Folies Bergère in Paris, and in New York, became a muse and model for many artists and writers of the Harlem Renaissance. The son of a wealthy landowner in Dakar, Benga was disinherited as a teenager, and after his death, largely forgotten. Ruga resurrects the performer’s legacy with this larger than life-size figure covered in flowers and jewels, mounted and lit onstage: a glimmering monument to an influential artist that responds to—and may reframe—the prevailing presence of historical monuments to colonialism and racism, many of which are now coming down.⁠

Square and rectangle handmade tiles surprise our weary travelers as unexpected body parts welcome them into the shower. The noses, ears, eyes, lips, bellies, breasts, pecs, and clavicles were created by the talented artisans at Rookwood Pottery (just up the road in OTR), exclusively for 21c Cincinnati.

Did you know? Rookwood Pottery turns 140 years old this year and their ceramics have never looked fresher. Rookwood was one of the first female founded and owned manufacturing companies in the US, in 1880. 7 years later Kataro Shirayamadani, one of the greatest artists in the history of Ceramics joined the staff, and in 2004 his 100+ year old black glazed iris vase set an auction record sale for American Art Pottery. In the early 20th century the company rolled out their architectural tile line with pieces soon adorning NYC subway stations and prestigious hotels like the Seelbach Hotel in Louisville, the Fort Pitt Hotel in Pittsburgh and the Vanderbilt Hotel in NYC.

A handful of tiles are sold in our 21c gift shop. For a more in depth look at what Rookwood’s producing these days we encourage our guests and friends to make the walk north of the hotel to 1920 Race St and visit their flagship store and tile showroom and take home a piece of our city with you.

'BLACK LIVES MATTER!'

You've seen these words written in bold, yellow paint across the country, but in Cincinnati, every letter of this block-long mural tells a story of hope and social justice. Inspired by the poem 'We want what you want' by movement organizer and Urban League board chair Alandes Powell, this mural represents the experiences of 17 local black artists, including former #21cElevate artists, Cedric Michael Cox ("E" in MATTER) and Michael Coppage ("L" in BLACK).

Find this mural on Plum Street in front of City Hall.

Need to recharge? Good news. The Spa at 21c is reopening their doors next THURS 9.03

Speaking of the Spa... did you know there is a site specific installation in the stairwell leading to the spa lobby? Ryan Wolfe’s "Field of Grass" distills and recreates the feel of a windswept, grassy expanse. The movement of the blades are activated by wind data; viewers can watch as a gust of air moves across the entire installation.

Patterson’s 'of 72' series is the artist’s response to a mass murder that occurred in her native Jamaica in 2010. Using digital imagery, embroidery, floral appliqués, rhinestones, and more, Patterson creates visually compelling images of those marginalized in life, and forgotten in death. A bandana covering the lower half of the face prevents identifying the individual subject, further emphasizing the anonymity of the overlooked. Ruminating on this tragedy, the artist asks: “What happens when seventy-two men (72) and one (1) woman die and no one knows who they are? Who were these men and this woman who were killed during the incursion of May 2010? Did they have children? Did they have a mother? Father? Did they have brothers or sisters? How old were they? What did they like to do on the weekends? What clothes were they wearing? Who were they?”

Looks like one of our 🐧 wandered away from the flock for a 📷 with Jenny Roesel Ustick's vibrant and playful 'Doris Forever' mural 💛

Based on Cincinnati-native Doris Kappelhoff who later adopted the stage name Doris Day. As a singer and actress, she recorded over 650 songs in her career and was one of the biggest film stars in the 50's-60’s. In her lifetime, Day received Lifetime Achievement Awards from the Golden Globes, GRAMMYs and in 2004 she received a Presidential Medal of Freedom. In addition to her stage life, she was also a strong supporter of LGBTQ rights and animal welfare. Doris Day passed away just a month before the mural was painted in 2019.

Notice something familiar about this monumental, majestic portrait? Maybe you're reminded of a certain former president's (...Barack Obama) portrait? Or maybe you recall seeing "Portrait of Bintou Fall" in the #21cPopStars exhibit at 21c Museum Hotel Lexington? If you guessed that this is the work of Kehinde Wiley, then you guessed correct!

Pictured here is Kehinde Wiley’s, "The Prophet and the King II."

Wiley is particularly interested in the power relationships between mug shots and 18th-century portraits: “One is positioned in a way that is totally outside their control, shut down and relegated to those in power,” observes the artist, “whereas those in the other are positioning themselves in states of stately grace and self-possession.” To include personal nuance, Wiley asks his models to bring their own clothing and any props they have selected. As a nod to the role of the artist in the fabrication of these works, Wiley reminds the viewer of the artist’s role in representation—his own face appears in the hand-carved relief at the top of the frame.

Brian Knep’s "Healing Tiles" uses custom software algorithms to create a glowing pool of organic patterns on the lobby hallway floor. Left alone, the patterns slowly pulsate and shift over the course of each day; when visitors walk across the piece the patterns tear apart and rebuild themselves, but never exactly as before. These tiles hold a memory of all the visitors that have walked through this hallway since the installation was activated in late 2012 💛

“My mother told me when I was like eight years old the complexity of what I would have to deal with, so knowing made me think I’ve gotta build a thick skin. I’ve gotta be able to operate in a world that could work against me as opposed to for me. What do I do with that?” - Nick Cave - Visual Artist

When speaking about his work Soundsuit: “The impetus for the work came out of the Rodney King incident in 1991. The idea of the soundsuit was an envisioning of what that kind of character would look like. Then I started to think about what it feels like to be discarded and dismissed—about the implications of that, and the materials that provoked that. So the first soundsuit was constructed entirely out of twigs. I was making a sculpture first—I didn't even think I could physically put this on—but once it was developed I physically put it on and moved around in it, and it made sound. And when I made that sound, it moved me into a role of protest. In order to be heard you have to speak louder.”

There we were, on our way to downtown Cincinnati. We knew we were going to some place to spend the night after a day of fine food and wine. I had no idea where we would stay. Gentlemen helped us at the curb to take our night gear out of the back of the car and inside the lobby area. They are friendly helpful, cheerful people. The door was held open for us. Thank you sir. My head was down and not paying particular attention to my surroundings. My belly was full and it was the end of a fun and busy day in Cincinnati. The entrance is clean and sharp and I looked up to see a magnificent painting behind the attendants counter. How wonderful... I had a hard time giving attention to the folks at the counter because of the art in front of me. Then I learned that 21c in addition to providing a safe clean place to slumber used their space to feature artists works. The art works on display now represent well thought out combinations of experiences and ideas to the aesthetics. After getting settled I walked around the gallery areas and looked at the high end art. The display of art brings the outside in, what a great idea. On the hotel side everything is very clean and everything worked. The hotel staff are all mannerly intelligent people. Our room was fantastic and the bed is very comfortable which doesn't happen often as a lot of folks know. Ya can't do it all at once so 21c is a great place to make as a home base if you plan on attending the number of great places to eat and to employ the offerings for entertainment by the downtown area. Downtown Cincinnati is clean and safe also and makes me want to visit again. Oh,,,, and by the way, I had the best Negroni on the 21c cocktail terrace, yum. My son tells me there's a new steak house, Losani's, so,,, I'll have to try that. I'll end by saying the, Please, restaurant was very well done.
