Hero Bearcats will be a free public art event that will bring the spirit of the Bearcats throughout the community as we celebrate the University’s Bicentennial. This will be a fun way for locals and visitors alike to engage with the University’s beloved mascot throughout Cincinnati in 2019. Throughout this event, Bearcat will be seen in life-sized statues, decorated by local artists, with designs intended to inspire and celebrate the everyday heroes that live and work among us all. The fun and creative designs (i.e. Artist Bearcat, Teacher Bearcat, Firefighter Bearcat, Nurse Bearcat, etc.) are anticipated to be on display throughout greater Cincinnati and the University of Cincinnati campus between April and September 2019.
