CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A big change is happening to parts of Great American Ball Park ahead of the All-Star Game. 

ArtWorks is paying tribute to the city's rich baseball history with two giant art installations. 

These two larger than life art works can be found on the windows of the Reds Hall of Fame and Museum and along the retaining wall on the corner of Mehring and Pete Rose Way.  

This is basically a love poem to Cincinnati.  

The piece at the museum pays tribute to Hit King Pete Rose.

The lines of the poem mentions avoiding the tag and sliding head first into home.  

The second portion of the poem along Mehring includes the phrase "To cheer into the river Night."  

It will also display the entire love poem to Cincinnati.   

The poem features lines from a crowd sourced love poem with thoughts collected from over 1,000 people in Cincinnati.  It was penned by Writers Collective, Chase Public.

The overall project is called CincyInk, which contains declarations of love of the Queen City in a poem called, "Seven Hills and a Queen to Name Them.” 

The installation is happening now and is dedicated to bringing more exposure to the All-Star Game and how much Cincinnati loves its Reds team.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, Monday, July 16, 2018.

    Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.
