CLIFTON - Murals at Central Clinic/Child and Family Treatment Center, painted by Cincinnati artist and poet Annie Ruth and four Cincinnati Public Schools students she recently mentored, will be unveiled at a reception 4-7 p.m. Friday at the clinic, 311 Albert Sabin Way, Clifton.

Ruth, who is the 2003 Taft Museum Duncanson Artist-in-Residence, painted several murals composed of panels measuring 30 inches by 40 inches.

The students helped her select colors and fabrics and completed smaller paintings.

The art-mentoring program aims to encourage students to increase their academic performance, improve their painting and artistic skills, and develop a strong work ethic.
