This frieze on the ceilings of the library’s reading rooms depicts “Flowers and Animals” and was funded by the FAP and WPA. The artist is currently unknown to the Living New Deal. The library itself was completed in 1932, but is very similar in design to what soon after became known as the WPA style.
