Local art project competing for money from Pepsi | Arts & Culture
CNICINNATI (FOX19) - A couple of local people are trying to win 50 thousand dollars from Pepsi to build an art and education center in Northside out of used shipping containers.
The building, which in drawings looks more attractive than it may sound, is competing for a "Pepsi Refresh Grant." Pepsi selected this plan from Chris Hoeting & Jonathan Sears of parProjects as one of the entrants in the contest.
It will offer exhibition space, visiting artist residency studios, and educational programming. The building will be the first of its kind in the Midwest and will serve as an positive example of environmental awareness for the City of Cincinnati and State of Ohio. The proposed placement of the building project is on Hamilton Ave, in front of the American Can Building.
