24 Spectacular Cincinnati Murals You Need to Visit

ArtWorks has been producing public art along the streets and on the sides of Greater Cincinnati buildings for more than a decade. Each summer, the arts nonprofit paints more than a dozen murals as part of its Summer Apprentice Program (geared towards youth), honoring the legacy of local creative individuals and the impact others had on Cincinnati culture — from James Brown to illustrator Edie Harper and Pop artist Tom Wesselmann. The brightly rendered tributes complement other commissioned street art to beautify.. and provide great photo ops.
