Cincinnati #2

These are shots of the train station in Cincinnati -- an Art Deco masterpiece. Inside are the huge tile murals. Not being familiar with the place, I didn't realize it was a mosaic until I came closer. Being a painter, it's a bit of a mystery to me how you would go about doing something on this massive a scale, but it is awesome. The whole setting is something to admire -- the approach to the building, the great style of the building and the inside. It's a real tribute to an era gone by, but still functions as the train station and another museum.
