Convention Center Charlie Harper Murals

Cincinnati, Ohio 45202, United States

Created By: Anne Steinert


This mural, entitled Spacewalk and influenced by the moon landing, is the work of Cincinnati-based artist Charley Harper. Harper completed the mural in 1970, but it was covered over with drywall in 1987 and only uncovered in 2015. The mural measures 15 x 30 feet and is considered Harper's only significant non-representational work. It is now valued at over $1 million.

Modernist Charley Harper is not generally considered a muralist. Most of his works were paintings or prints. His primary subject was American wildlife and he called his own style "minimal realism."
