The Welcome Project, an art and food-based social enterprise run by and for Cincinnati’s refugee and immigrant community, is pleased to begin an artist residency program that will feature refugee and immigrant artists through an exhibition and related public educational programs.
Pedro Moreno is our first Artist in Residence. As part of his residency Moreno will exhibit a series of his paintings and ceramic works and host two public art classes where he will teach his craft during the month of June. As part of Camp Washington’s Second Saturday Art Walk, Moreno will host an opening reception June 8th from 6-9pm at The Welcome Project. Pedro Moreno lives and works in Cincinnati and is originally from Bolivia. He paints to fertilize his imagination and to project both his memories and perspective. He was recently selected as the 2019 Movement Artist of the Year by the Cincinnati Interfaith Workers Center. Moreno’s work will remain on exhibition at The Welcome Project through July 6th.
