The City of Cincinnati is commissioning a public outdoor memorial project to honor civil rights icon Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This memorial will be located at the northeast corner of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive East and Reading Road in Uptown’s Avondale neighborhood. It is slated for completion and a public dedication in August 2023 to coincide with the 60th anniversary of Dr. King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
In September 2021, the City announced an open call for artists as the first step of the process. Responses were received and an evaluation committee has narrowed the list to a select number of artists or teams who will be developing design proposals with public input.
The City of Cincinnati is inviting you to share your thoughts and impressions with the artists by completing this short survey. The selection process requires designers to demonstrate they have incorporated community input into their design proposal.
Please complete the survey and share your reflections on the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King. You may even see your vision come to life in Cincinnati’s tribute to Dr. King.
