OHHS Art and Design Teacher and Alumni Create “Cultivating Community” with StreetSpark!

Posted on: July 7, 2021

OHHS Art and Design teacher Jamie Schorsch, and Taylor Helms (’15), alongside artist Kinsey Downs, recently contributed to the public art legacy of Hamilton, OH this summer through the StreetSpark program. Formed through a partnership between the City of Hamilton and the Fitton Center for Creative Arts, StreetSpark is a program founded to further the art identity in the city through exciting public art projects. This program creates arts engagement by producing high-quality murals, building opportunities for local artists, and enhancing the visual appeal of the city. StreetSpark brings visible murals and artwork into the community with the goal of fueling Hamilton with art.

Schorsch’s design, “Cultivating Community”, added to the stunning murals located throughout Hamilton and is located on the Telhio Credit Union on Park Ave. For 3 weeks, Schorsch led the team of two talented supporting artists in the creation of the mural which spans 2 walls of the Telhio building.

An event celebrating the creation of “Cultivating Community” will take place on July 20th, 2021 at 5:30pm at the mural location site: Telhio Credit Union, 601 Park Ave, Hamilton, Ohio 45013. The event is free and open to the public!
