*** OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY! THE LOOK HERE! SIGNS WILL BE AUCTIONED OFF AS A FUNDRAISER FOR RENAISSANCE COVINGTON AT OUR NOVEMBER 4TH “THIS COVINGTON IS OUR COVINGTON” MURAL UNVEILING & CELEBRATION — JOIN US!***
Look Here! is an outdoor public history exhibit developed for Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood by Anne Delano Steinert. The exhibit was open from November 2015 to March 2016. The installation featured historic photos on existing poles placed so that people could experience current and historic views, side by side, allowing viewers to make new connections with the past and their neighborhood. The project was specifically developed to be replicated in other neighborhoods.
Through a partnership between the City of Covington, Renaissance Covington, and the Kenton County Public Library, Look Here! Covington will be the second neighborhood to host this photography exhibit. Look Here! Covington would not be possible without the generous support of Anne Delano Steinert and People’s Liberty.
The exhibit will be up from November 2016 – October 2017.

Fifty photos and installation sites have been identified in and around Roebling Point, the Central Business District, Mainstrasse and the West Sixth Street corridor. Images were selected in connection with the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966, which seeks to preserve historical and archaeological sites in the United States.
Covington Through the Years
The photos and sites selected share the story of Covington’s development not only during the early years, but through to recent history.
The exhibit will emphasize the walkability of Covington’s neighborhoods, promoting connectivity between Mainstrasse and downtown Madison Avenue and even nod to Covington’s recent public art effort, Curb’d, in which five parking spots in urban Covington were taken over for an art installation.
