The Cincinnati Strong Man: Henry Holtgrewe

ArtWorks hosts a mile-long walking tour of seven to 10 of Over-the-Rhine’s best community murals. A guide will tell the story behind murals like the new The Cincinnati Strong Man: Henry Holtgrewe, a colorful turn-of-the-century advertisement-style collage of the German immigrant and strong man Henry Holtgrewe; Mr. Tarbell Tips His Hat, the admittedly mildly bizarre multi-story portrait of favorite Cincinnatian Jim Tarbell dressed in a tuxedo and top hat; and The Golden Muse, based on an 18th century mantle clock in the Taft Museum of Art. Learn how they connect to the city’s history and this historic neighborhood in a 90-minute tour. 


Noon Saturdays. Through November. $20. Meets at Coffee Emporium, 110 E. Central Parkway, Over-the-Rhine, artworkscincinnati.org.
