Charley Harper Federal Building Mural

I've read about the Charley Harper mural in the Federal Building Cincinnati, but had no idea it was still in existence until I saw these pics on Visualingual.

The mural illustrates American wildlife in Harper's unique style, easily recognisable even when created in mosaic tiles. In fact his style seems to really lend itself to this discipline.

It's so great to see it in such detail, so huge thanks Visualingual for going down there and then sharing your pics.

PS. Tomorrow is the last day to catch the Charley Harper exhibition at Castor + Pollux, Brighton.

I’m glad you like the Federal Building mural! There’s at least one more mosaic mural done by Harper—it’s in the Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati. It was covered [but not destroyed] during a remodel, and there’s now an effort to uncover it again. There’s a photo of it in the big book edited by Todd Oldham.
