OHHS Art and Design teacher Jamie Schorsch was hard at work during the sweltering summer creating a large scale mural for 802 Heaton St., located in the North End neighborhood of Hamilton, OH. Schorsch was a part of a team of two other local artists: Logan Walden and Kinsey Downs working with StreetSpark on the creation of the mural. Formed through a partnership between the City of Hamilton and the Fitton Center for Creative Arts, StreetSpark is a program founded to further the art identity in the city through exciting public art projects. This program creates arts engagement by producing high-quality murals, building opportunities for local artists, and enhancing the visual appeal of the city. StreetSpark brings visible murals and artwork into the community with the goal of fueling Hamilton with art.
Logan Walden designed the mural selected by the StreetSpark Mural Committee for the Heaton St. “Ro Bros” features two larger-than-life robot brothers amidst a vibrant pink sky. The neighborhood where the mural is located has an industrial history and is in a residential area where all ages are present; so the design pays tribute to the area’s past while offering something contemporary and fun for all ages.
