About a week away from BLINK, festival organizers have released an interactive installation map.
BLINK was last experienced by more than 1.3 million people in 2019 in Cincinnati and Covington. It returns this year from October 13 to 16. The event includes 101 facilities and will span more than 30 city blocks, from McMicken Avenue in Cincinnati to 7th Street in Covington.
“We are thrilled to share BLINK with the Cincinnati area,” said Justin Brookhart, Executive Director of BLINK. “Collaborations with so many artists and individuals within the community make BLINK truly an experience like no other.”
The map features a variety of projects, light installations, lighting effects, music and murals by 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 expected to be announced later this week.
“After months of organization, seeing BLINK officially take shape is incredible,” 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 transform familiar locations and bring their installations to life.”
The map can be viewed by visiting blinkcincinnati.com or by downloading a copy here. A digital version of the map will be released on October 11.
