Legacy of Royalty

The Cincinnati Recreation Commission & ArtWorks partnered to design and produce the Legacy of Loyalty mural, which is one of three murals designed by artist Adoria Maxberry in the Evanston Recreation Center that celebrates the neighborhood’s past, present, and future. Legacy of Loyalty celebrates Evanston’s rich history in music, such as being home to the iconic King Records. Launching the careers of music royalty like James Brown and numerous others, King Records helped transform and shape not only Cincinnati’s music scene, but the nation’s as well. The vibrant blue record is plays off of the concentric circles found on a record and the multi-color warm tones of the background represent the vibrant diverse community that continues to grow.
