QUEENSGATE, OH (FOX19) -

ArtWorks unveiled a firefighters mural on Tuesday that will appear on the side of the Local 48 building in Queensgate.

April 1, 2013 marked the 160th anniversary of the Cincinnati Fire Department. To celebrate, ArtWorks is partnering with Cincinnati Fire Fighters Union IAFF Local 48 to paint a mural that honors the nation's oldest fire department and illustrates the evolution of the Cincinnati Fire Fighters from 1853 to present day.

The mural will be located at the corner of West 8th Street and Freeman Avenue. 

Founded in 1996, ArtWorks is a non-profit arts organization that empowers and inspires the creative community to transform our everyday environments through employment, apprenticeships, education, community partnerships, and civic engagement.
