“2:21 p.m. April 23, 2020, Jordan Ware was found dead from a gunshot wound at Irving and Forest near the playground between Vine and the Zoo. A print of this portrait will be placed at the site. I have many Sidewalk Shrine Portraits all over Cincinnati, a gesture that means a lot to the family and brings hope to a tragedy. The family receives the original art.”
