'Mr. Dynamite'  A Tribute to James Brown

Courtney Groeschen, 'Mr. Dynamite' A Tribute to James Brown

Standing on the corner of Liberty and Main, the mural was completed in 2015 as a tribute to the legendary James Brown. Brown recorded many of his early hits, including 'Say It Loud - I'm Black and I'm Proud' with Cincinnati's King Records. 'Mr. Dynamite,' based on a photo of a young James Brown Performing, was designed by Jenny Ustick through ArtWorks, a non-profit organization working to unite the Cincinnati community through art, and in partnership with Urban Sites.
