Misfit Genius was recently invited to participate in 199C —Cincinnati’s only Opening Day art event.

The show opened yesterday at BLDG Gallery (30 W. Pike Street, Covington), with work from over 40 artists ranging from a local to international scale themed around baseball, Cincinnati and Opening Day. Artwork will remain on display at BLDG until April 25.

For our contribution to 199C, we gained inspiration from vintage Topps Trading Cards and created nine fictional Reds players, based on nine different areas of Cincinnati & Covington. Each player not only represents the area through their name, but also their position on the field. 

Check out images of our 199C project, Cincinnati Stomping Grounds, above.

We recently shot an episode of Think | Lead | Influence with our good buddies, PUBLIC. Next week, we’ll be sharing an interview, but to hold you over until then, here’s an exclusive acoustic performance of one of the Cincy trio’s new songs.

It’s called “Listen” and you’re hearing it first through TheMisfitGenius.com.

On Friday, March 21st, Misfit Genius participated in “Hungry Messages,” a graphic design show in the Eva G. Farris Art Gallery at Thomas More College. The goal of the show is showcase real, critical or challenging graphic design that students don’t often see in their environment–design that anthropomorphizes the works as living, breathing, ambitious and purposeful beings that crave an audience.

Special thanks to our biggest design mentor and former professor, Becky Amann, for inviting us to participate in such an engaging art show.
