One approach to putting people back to work during the Great Depression was commissioning artists to paint murals on federal buildings. Artists were chosen not on need but through anonymous competitions. The program ran from 1934 to 1943. During that time over 1,300 murals and 300 sculptures were commissioned nationwide. The article contains a list of post offices in the state where murals can still be viewed and buildings that were destroyed along with the murals.
