CINCINNATI (AP) - The remaining six of nine massive glass tile mosaics originally made for the train concourse at Cincinnati’s Union Terminal are being moved from the area’s biggest airport across the Ohio River to the downtown convention center.

Three of the 20-by-20-foot murals were moved to the Duke Energy Convention Center last month from two airport terminals at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport poised for demolition.

The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (https://cin.ci/1T9iuws ) the remaining mosaics will be moved on Saturday. Area roads will be closed from 6 a.m. until about 8 p.m. On-street parking will not be allowed.

The mosaics were created in 1933 by artist Winold Reiss. Reiss originally created nearly two dozen murals of soap makers and steel workers.

The mosaics are expected to be unveiled later this year.
