On April 18, you might see groups of people in purple shirts running through Downtown Cincinnati in search of art.  No, it’s not another marathon – it’s the Amazing Arts Race, ArtsWave’s signature Young Professionals event back for a third year.

In a creative scavenger hunt inspired by the hit reality TV series The Amazing Race, teams of young professionals race to complete a series of arts challenges in Downtown Cincinnati and beyond. During the race, teams will test their knowledge of the arts, identifying landmarks, answering trivia questions and making art themselves. It’s a great opportunity for young professionals from across the region to connect to each other and discover what makes Cincinnati amazing.
