The Cobbler's Apprentice Plays Ball
This mural was inspired by one of Cincinnati's most treasured painters Frank Duveneck and one of his most beloved paintings, "The Cobbler's Apprentice." The artists reinterpreted the original painting with a twist by adding a baseball bat, drawing inspiration from the proximity to the nearby riverfront stadium and Cincinnati's important role in the history of baseball as the first professional American team. The original masterpiece can be seen as part of the permanent collection at the Taft Museum of Art.
