The mural is located on 1537 Republic Street and painting began in June. The mural is to be completed sometime this month and there will be a celebration for its dedication. The mural will be titled, The Cincinnati Cobra and will be a part of the Cincinnati Legends murals.
The lead artist working on the Charles mural will be Jason Snell from the design house, We have Become Vikings. Last year he designed the Cincinnati Legends mural that was dedicated to Henry Holtgrewe. The Charles mural will look more figurative and less illustrative compared to the Holtgrewe mural, which can be seen on Vine between 13th and 14th street.
If you are interested in learning more about Artworks murals you can participate in their weekend walking tours. They are led by Artworks volunteers and young Apprentice mural painters. The tours are meant to educate and entertain by sharing the inside stories on how the large-scale murals came to life. Tickets can be purchased on Artworks website.
