About the speaker

Joshua Stout is an artist from Cincinnati, OH. He currently runs Makeshift Mammoth, a creative agency that focuses on community building and neighborhood beautification.

In 2017 Joshua curated and managed the BLINK Cincinnati light-parade and light-based installations. Then, in 2019, he created a BLINK installation, named “Story Over Stigma,” in partnership with the Lindner Center of Hope, designed to shine a light on mental health issues.

You may have also seen some of Joshua’s murals in the tri-state area. His large-scale works include the ballerina hippos on 8th & Main in downtown Cincinnati, the “East End” mural across from The Hi-Mark on Columbia Parkway, and the pastel-abstract mural outside of the Cincinnati Public Library downtown.

While murals are his primary art form, he branches out into other art forms as well. Joshua has built static and animatronic figures for Warner Bros. and Disney, created a 7-foot take-out box for Asian Food Fest, digitally illustrated Michael Keaton’s filmography, and led the efforts to bring the SkyStar Observation Wheels to the Banks.

Additional details

We’re going to try to start our virtual event a little earlier again to allow for a breakout room session before we get down to business. We’ll send the Zoom details out the morning of the event for everyone registered. See you soon!
