“Living in other places around Ohio then coming Grandview I haven’t seen such an amazing caring history and culture. A lot of that is the artwork that makes the city the way it is. The 5 columns with this artwork display is adding to the growing culture of Grandview. They are replenishing the already flourishing town that is Grandview. I hope that things like this keep up and keep going, maybe even make other towns adapt these things too.”

We source talented artists to take up residence in Grandview Schools. Every few months, they will collaborate with pupils and create exciting installations to work on the columns outside Stevenson Elementary.
Our mission is to bring unexpected and interactive art into the community and beyond.
Debbie is a fine artist from Cincinnati. Her collaboration with Stevenson students has generated a public art installation using ‘upcycled’ local materials, many of which were donated by parents. She believes that things from the community and its surroundings are inspiring: ‘they carry something of the lives of the people who used them, the energy of a place’. The artist has a passion to expand our view of what art can be, and what we can achieve collectively.
