ReArt is the working title of an international image exchange that has been operating among Cincinnati’s Sister Cities since 2005. The original concept was conceived of and refined by Jan Brown Checco of Cincinnati, Ohio, USA, and Gabi Stolz of Munich, Germany. The first project—“A Change of Perspective”—included 18 professional artist partners from Cincinnati and Munich and generated 180 original works of art which were exhibited in 4 cities from 2005–2007.

The next application of the process—“Triangular Drawings”—included 18 artists from Cincinnati, Munich and Liuzhou, China, and generated 234 drawings. The ReArt traveled the globe, exhibiting in Ohio, Germany and China. In 2008, this project was awarded the “Innovation in the Arts” prize from Sister Cities International.

The most recent incarnation of the process—“ReArt/World Garden”—includes 12 artists from Cincinnati and Kharkiv, Ukraine. The resulting 84 images will be a gallery feature of the “Butterflies of the World 2012” show at Krohn Conservatory in Cincinnati, an event that annually attracts more than 90,000 visitors. The artists are excited to share what they have discovered with the audience: that meaningful communication through art creates new relationships and that imagery can overcome barriers typically imposed by disparate languages.
