Cincinnati Venus



This status was commissioned in 1988 as a gift to the city for its bicentennial.  The statue was created by Cincinnati native Jim Dine, a graduate of Walnut Hills High School and the Art Academy.  The statue is made of granite and modeled after the Venus de Milo with a twist to the body and without the head.  The statue sits on a reflecting pool in Centennial Plaza on Central Avenue.
