These two oil on canvas murals, entitled “Farm Landscape” and “Point Loma,” were painted by Charles Reiffel on a commission from the WPA Federal Art Project in 1937. They were originally installed at Memorial Junior High School. Each mural measures 10′ x 10′. Some contemporary critics called Reiffel “America’s Van Gogh” (Balboa Park Beat, October 2012).
