Urban Walls, by Barron Krody, was one of the largest and most extensive public art projects undertaken in Cincinnati, was conceived and organized by Carl Solway and Jack Boulton. Ten Cincinnati artists and designers were invited to created monumental paintings to mask the scars left by urban renewal in the late 1960's. The visual impact of these walls added a sense of place and spirit to the declining center of the city. The project was managed by Solway's art gallery and funded through private and government sources.
The only surviving wall painting is Allegro by Krody, from 1971. Kroduy's award-winning graphic design was used on the poster to announce the "Urban Walls: Cincinnati" project.
