For over 200 years Cincinnati has maintained its reputation for being known as a midwestern hub for arts, culture, food, sports, and history. Although Cincinnati started from humble beginnings, it soon became an epicenter for trade, coining the nicknames “Porkopolis” and “Queen City.” To this day Cincinnati is one of the fastest-growing midwest cities. 

Cincinnati’s day-to-day citizens would tell you that the Queen City is much more than sports and chili. Cincinnati’s spirit lies within its people, within the hidden gems scattered about the city, and within its rich history.  Queen City Visual Narrative: An Exploration of Cincinnati’s Iconography shines a light on both highly recognizable landmarks to lesser-known iconography throughout the city: both being pivotal in painting the picture of what makes Cincinnati the “Queen City.”
