About this Mural:
For the first time ever, ArtWorks tapped the community to vote and select the mural subject. The first female of our Legends Series, this mural will be located in a prominent location on the corner of Liberty and Pleasant Street in Over-the-Rhine. In partnership with the Cincinnati Enquirer, the community voted for musical talent, Rosemary Clooney.
Clooney was chosen from a list which also included actress Louise Beavers, Queen of the Blues Mamie Smith, Baseball star Dorothy Kamenshek and author and abolitionist, Harriet Beecher Stowe.
ArtWorks Legends Mural Series celebrates and shares the story of iconic figures who have shaped Cincinnati and left a lasting legacy in the city. The community-selected Female Legend, will join others in the series including a planned Annie Oakley mural and the completed James Brown Mural: Mr. Dynamite and The Ezzard Charles Mural: The Cincinnati Cobra.
