Mural (50)

Space Walk

This mosaic mural, originally created in 1970, is one of only three ceramic tile murals by Charley Harper on permanent display in Ohio. The inspiration for the mural is credited to the mid-century fascination with space travel and all things intergalactic and is a departure from Harper's more nature-oriented artwork. In 2015, the mural was restored and opened to the public during a ceremony that honored Harper as an influential national artist with a lifetime love for his adopted hometown. Restoration of the mural was completed by local artists of Koverman Mosaic, who manufactured custom replacement tiles for the damaged lower edge of the mural and installed the new tiles.
