Charley Harper Mural







This mural was designed by Charley Harper in the downtown Cincinnati John Weld Peck Federal Building at 550 Main Street. The mural consists of two small murals, each 18' × 10.5', titled American Wildlife and features about 100 animals done entirely in ceramic tile. I would love to see this masterpiece in person. Have you seen this?

No I have not but would like to. Beautiful. I love these installations and usually only ever see them in the older buildings. Kudos to them.
