New mural unveiled at Barnesville Post Office in Ohio

A reproduction of a New Deal mural was recently unveiled at the Barnesville Post Office in Ohio. Painted by local artist Twyla Fisher and commissioned by the Belmont County Historical Society, the mural is a replacement for the original Treasury Section of Fine Arts (TSFA) mural by Cleveland artist Michael Sarisky in 1937. The original mural, “Air Mail,” was hung in the Post Office lobby, but was taken down in the 1970s and subsequently lost. Read the story here. Photo credit: This Week News.
