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 so glad you like the Harper mural! He did at least two other mosaic murals -- one at Miami University not too far from Cincinnati, which is still on display. Another one is in the Convention Center in downtown Cincinnati, but it was covered up during a remodel. There's now an effort to get it uncovered again. There's a photo of it in the big Harper book that was edited by Todd Oldham.
