In celebration of Discovery Channel's Shark Week, the Newport Aquarium unveiled it's 35-foot-long sand tiger shark mural on Thursday.

ArtWorks Cincinnati produced a #SharkWall mural for Newport Aquarium as part of the aquarium's 15-year anniversary. Completion of the mural, which occurred on Aug. 8, came to fruition thanks to the hard work of ArtWorks and its group of more than 15 dedicated artists, 12 of which were young artist apprentices from various neighborhoods throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

The lead designer of the mural was Roz Tallmadge, a Cincinnati native and Walnut Hills High School alum. She named the design of the mural "Shining Seas".
