Two new exhibits at the Weston Art Gallery in the Aronoff Center for the Arts pay tribute to the monumental "Worker Murals" of Cincinnati's Union Terminal. The artist, Winold Reiss, visited Cincinnati factories and photographed real workers for his mosaics in the 1930s. Now, artists Matt Lynch and Curtis Goldstein visit modern day factories and depict women and men at work for their series of mosaics inspired by Winold Reiss.

Nine murals created by art deco artist Winold Reiss have been installed and rededicated outside the Duke Energy Convention Center. The murals were first installed at Union Terminal in 1933 but moved to the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) in 1974.
