The London Police Invade Northern KY

Bob Gibson and Chaz Barrison of The London Police hard at work on thier mural inside CVG

Greater Cincinnati has been synonymous with murals for generations. 

In 1932, Winold Reiss created 23 towering mosaics for Union Terminal -- though 14 of them have since been moved to the airport for preservation.

One of Cincinnati’s most iconic pieces of art is the mural for the Terrace Plaza Hotel, created in 1947 by Joan Miro -- that now sits across from the Terrace Café in the Cincinnati Art Museum.
