The Restoration of the "Northside Bloom" Mural

This three story backdrop to Hoffner Park located in the heart of the Historical "up and coming" Northside Business and Entertainment District is the most recognized image representing the Northside Community.

The Northside Bloom mural is among the most photographed and shared images of this living, working, and thriving neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio by visitors and tourists from all over the world. To the local inhabitants of Northside it represents the rebirth of what was once a struggling district some 30 years ago. The mural was originally dedicated in 2007 as a symbol of the years of hard work and reinvestment into the community by local residents and business owners.

In recent years the mural has deteriorated through weather and age and is in immediate need of a full restoration before the original image is lost forever. Our community is banding together and reaching out to raise the necessary funds for a complete and full restoration during the Summer of 2018. This project is completely non-profit with all proceeds going directly towards the restoration of the mural. Any funding over and above actual costs will be donated to the local non-profit organizations that have engaged in the fundraising and restoration efforts of the mural to support their charitable works in the Northside community.

Northside Bloom reflects the rebirth and spirit of Northside and should be preserved as proof that the hard work and commitment of residents and business owners has grown into something truly beautiful. 

For those of you have never visited Northside, we welcome you to stop by any time! Experience for yourself what a truly open, friendly and flourishing community is like. 

Thank you for your contribution toward our effort to "Save the Daisies” and keep this iconic image alive.

Please note that 100% of funds are deposited in a dedicated "Save the Daisies" account at Northside Bank & Trust Company 4125 Hamilton Avenue Cincinnati Ohio 45223.

We wish to thank all of the generous folks that made this restoration possible! The Mural was restored in the summer of 2018 back to its original beauty. This could not have been accomplished without the generous financial support from all that donated to this campaign. Our sincere thanks and best wishes to all of you!

We are half way to reaching our goal!!! Thanks to everyone who has participated thus far. So much has been accomplished in such a short period of time. Now we are in the final stretch and its time to rally everyone!

Restoration work will begin the week of June 25 and we still need to raise the remaining funds to complete all of the work required. We have decided to begin work hoping to take advantage of dryer weather and with full confidence that support for this treasured public artwork will fully fund this project.

I am asking all of you to rally everyone you can to support the "Save the Daisies" campaign during the month of June. Together we can demonstrate that again, the small grass root community of Northside can deliver big things! It's the true spirit of Northside!
