Cotton Industry in Contemporary America"Cotton Industry in Contemporary America"
Under the WPA Federal Arts Project, artist Monty Lewis installed a large double fresco depicting “The Cotton Industry in Contemporary America” in 1936. The fresco may be in the auditorium or in a corridor.
At the time of installation, this building was the High School of Industrial Arts. It later became the Sarah J. Hale High School and then, in 2001, the Brooklyn High School of the Arts.
