The Golden Muse by Tim Parsley

The Golden Muse by Tim Parsley

The Golden Muse, painted by Tim Parsley and a team of ArtWorks apprentices, is located across the street from Washington Park, on the corner of 13th and Race Sts. in Over-the-Rhine, Cincinnati.

This majestic beauty, surrounded by notes to Aaron Copeland’s Fanfare for the Common Man, overlooks the Emanuel Center parking lot:

She’s inspired by this 18th century mantel clock in the permanent collection of the Taft Museum of Art downtown. The mural was painted as part of the Taft’s 80th anniversary celebration.

On the other side of the parking lot is an older ArtWorks mural, The Vision of Samuel Hannaford by Scott Donaldson [who also painted one of my local favorites, Campy Washington]:

Both murals reference aspects of Cincinnati history and, of course, they’re located in the historic neighborhood of Over-the-Rhine, across the street from an historic, though recently completely rehabbed, city park. The murals are thus thematically related, though I wish there were more of a visual connection as well.
