Murals in Cincinnati

This was one of many murals I saw while visiting Cincinnati, Ohio this past weekend:


This recently restored mural was originally created in 1983 and is on the north side of the original Kroger headquarters downtown.  It is called “Homage to Cincinnatus” and was painted in a style called “trompe l’oeil.”  Some of the windows are real but many are fake, and part of the illusion.

There were many, many murals scattered all over the city, and in other nearby towns, which are part of the ongoing ArtWorks project.  To see photos of all the murals (some of which date back to 2007) go to the website.
