Albuquerque Veterans’ Hospital Decorative Ceiling Wood Carving – Albuquerque NM

Description

These carvings adorn the ceiling of Building No. 1 of the Veterans’ Hospital, which was likely also a WPA project. From Public Art and Architecture in New Mexico 1933-1943 by Kathryn Flynn (2012): “Building No. 1 which currently houses the Psychology Department was one of the buildings constructed during the WPA activities and has unusually fine carved animal heads on the corbels which are at the end of the ceiling vigas. The carver or carvers are unknown. WPA handmade furniture is located throughout the building.”
