Charley Harper Mosaic Mural in Cincinnati

Charley Harper Mosaic Mural in Cincinnati

I've always wanted to see this in person and these are some of the best photos I've seen online! Maya from Visualingual photographed the two Charley Harper mosaic murals in the John Weld Peck Federal Building in downtown Cincinnati. Completed in 1964, each mural measures 18' x 10½' and together they depict over 100 American animal species in Harper's iconic style.

The John Weld Peck Federal Building is located at 550 Main Street in downtown Cincinnati and you have to pass through security to see the murals. You can see pictures of the murals and of Harper working on them in Todd Oldham's Charley Harper: An Illustrated Life.
