One of the pillar of our focus, we strive to work with our neighbors to transform public spaces into vibrant and integrative gathering spaces to serve and enhance the community.
Madlot, the space between 7th and Washington Street in Covington, served as a public art and performance space over the last several years. Proudly hosting the Artworks mural, The Divine Proportion of All Things Madlot served the community as a creative and performance gathering space. As Covington grows, the Madlot space is being repurposed into a new development.
Curb’d creates immersive public experiences in the area of a parking space. The goals of Curb’d are to support the business districts in urban Covington by promoting walkability, connectivity, and placemaking as well as to showcase the region’s design talent through quasi-temporary public installations. Installation posted May – October 2016.
Flowers on Madison
The Covington Business Council, MKSK Studios, Renaissance Covington & a number of community volunteers installed the first phase of the Madison Avenue Flower Program. This is a $20,000 investment in private funds to make this beautification of green space happen. The first phase of 39 planters are in!
Look Here Covington
Look Here! is an outdoor exhibit of historic photos affixed to street street signs in the context in which they were originally captured. In honor of 50 years of the Historic Preservation Act, we will place 50 images across the commercial center of Covington, highlighting the history of architecture and businesses over the past 130 years. The locations of the photos encourage community members to walk from Historic Licking Riverside to MainStrasse, going as far south as The Carnegie and the Cathedral. The exhibit is open from November 2016 – October 2017. The Look Here Signs will be auctioned off as a fundraiser for Renaissance Covington at our November 4th Mural Unveiling & Celebration.
