Una Merkel

Sweethearts of the U.S.A

The 21’x12′ tribute mural of a Covington native and Hollywood start during the Golden Age of film, is designed to tell and celebrate the story of Una Merkel. Una was a famous actress in the 1930’s cinema, and Tony Award winner for Supporting Actress in The Ponder Heart with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, an historic marker dedicated to her in Covington, and now a mural dedicated in her honor. The mural is a collage of images depicting her iconic roles in various films. The classic black and white style of the mural reflects the era in which she appeared on the big screen and celebrates Merkel in her prime.
