Park + Vine exhibit shows artist's support for streetcars

An month-long exhibition featuring poster art depicting the Cincinnati streetcar project opens tomorrow during Final Friday, from 6 P.M.-9 P.M. at Park + Vine, 1202 Main Street in Over-the-Rhine.

"Streetcar Desire" shows Cincinnati-based artist Aaron Wood's love for city living and multiple color schemes, representing a period of change in Downtown and Over-the-Rhine in which Cincinnatians are choosing to adopt a more urban, car-free lifestyle.

Through his art, Wood shows his support for the streetcar by showing how it can spur development while creating a stronger link between Cincinnati's events and landmarks.

Admission is free. Music will be provided by DJ Seb.

Wood, originally from Florida, holds a bachelor's degree in graphic design from Northern Kentucky University and has worked extensively as an illustrator, and exhibiting artist, and host of a Psychedelic music show for WAIF-FM.
