A Behringer-Crawford Museum Exclusive: Working in Progress No. 2 by Cedric Michael Cox and Friends
Behringer-Crawford Museum has partnered with acclaimed local artist Cedric Cox to create a one-of-a-kind, “community art” painting to be owned by one lucky bidder. Cox’s Working in Progress No. 2 began as a paint-by-numbers outline which was then transformed with color by BCM patrons. The result is a vibrant, geometric depiction of the Cincinnati skyline view from Devou Park, which Cox says, "is inspired by the economic growth of our region and all our aspirations for a brighter future for humanity."
