CoSign is on its way to Covington! From Soapbox Cincinnati: “On March 27, the American Sign Museum launched its second round of its CoSign project in Covington. The project area is the 400-900 blocks of Madison Avenue, and Seventh and Pike streets between Madison and Washington.
“The project will last six months, with the unveiling of the new signs on Art off Pike’s 10th anniversary on Sept. 28.
“CoSign offers a unique opportunity for artists and designers to create new, handcrafted signs for local retailers. It enhances economic activity in neighborhood business districts by pairing artists, small businesses and professional sign fabricators to design and install unique, handcrafted signs for local retailers.
“Any artist, designer or local business interested in participating in CoSign must attend one of the two workshops, which will be held on April 28 and May 6 at Covington Arts.
“CoSign, which was launched in Northside in 2012, was developed by the American Sign Museum and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation. In 2013, ArtPlace America granted the Haile Foundation $150,000, which allowed CoSign to expand its efforts in Northside, and repeat in Covington this year. The National Endowment for the Arts also granted Covingotn Arts $50,000 to support the project.
“Businesses located within the project area are encouraged to apply to the competition. The deadline is April 10.”
