We All Count: Census Campaign Coloring Pages
In July 2020, we collaborated with ArtsWave, The Well, Wave Pool, the City of Cincinnati, and the Over-the-Rhine Community Council to create coloring pages to spread the word about completing the census.
We paid two artists, John Lanzador and Pam Kravetz, to create the fun and quirky pages. Then we added information on each page about how to find the census survey with a QR Code, a website, and a phone number.
Our kits included the two coloring pages, crayons, and glue dots to share the message with family and neighbors by posting pages in windows.
Working with local organizations like summer camps, schools, housing providers, recreation locations, and more, we distributed over 2000 coloring pages in a few weeks.

Creating the Vote 🙋♀️🙋🏿♂️🙋🏻♂️🙋🏼♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♂️
Art on the Streets is making it easy to get information about voting in 2020.
Coloring pages created by local artists make it fun for everyone to share the how, when, and where of voting in the time of COVID.
Each coloring page includes a QR code and website to direct voters to information about registering, requesting and completing a mail-in ballot, voting early, and finding the correct polling place.
We are partnering with local businesses, schools, housing communities, festivals, and more to distribute the coloring kits.
Voting is step one for engaging the community in advocating for policies that address their priority goals.
In 2020, voting is complicated and new for everyone because of COVID. Everyone is encouraged to vote by mail or to 'early-vote' if they can.
Our coloring-kit campaign provides the information people need to find out how to take these unfamiliar voting steps — and for those who vote on election day, we will make sure they can find their polling place easily.
