Queen City Makes List of 19 Best Cities in America for Street Art

Whiskey Tango Globetrot recently recognized Cincinnati as one of the 19 Best Cities in America for Street Art.

The Queen City stood out from other potential candidates thanks to the more than 147 murals covering various communities in our area. "Cincinnati seems determined to have every neighborhood showered in high quality, local artwork. How many cities can you name in which the mayor made a Mural Proclamation, dedicated to having at least one mural painted in each of its neighborhoods?"

The article highlights the impressive Toy Heritage Mural at 23 West Court Street inspired by Cincinnati's own Kenner toy company, as well as the "equally impressive fruit and vegetable still life at the Kroger headquarters on Vine Street."
