What's the big box on Fountain Square?

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - The holiday season brings decorations of all sizes, shapes, and colors.

A large present can be seen by thousands of people on Fountain Square and was built by students from the Art Academy of Cincinnati. The students brainstormed ideas for the box coming up with a different theme for each side. From there they let their artistic nature take over. They incorporated screen printing painting, spray painting, and collage for sculpture forms onto the surface.

But what's this big present all about? The box will be a part of the New Years Eve Blast. What's inside will remain a mystery until the big reveal on New Year's Eve. The big bash will include a block party, free ice skating, local celebrities, music, and much more.

The holiday box will disappear in a couple of weeks and will mysteriously reappear somewhere here on fountain square. The big reveal of what inside the box will take place New Year's Eve. The New Year's Eve Blast will be shown throughout the night on FOX19.
