The opening night for any event or show is one filled with breathless anticipation, joyful moments, and finally a feeling of accomplishment after the guests have left and there is nothing but the remains of the excitement that once was.
Capturing the emotional charge of nights like those is a tough task for anyone, but Ohio artist Andrew Van Sickle has crafted a way to bring together the initial celebration of Cincinnati landmarks such as the Roebling bridge and Music hall with a unique pop art sensibility and color palette.
