"The Post as Connecting Thread in Human Life"
The historic former New Deal post office and federal building—now the Richmond County Administration Building—in Rockingham, North Carolina received an example of New Deal artwork upon its completion. Commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts, Edward Laning painted this triptych, “The Post as Connecting Thread in Human Life,” in 1937. The work can be found n the lobby near the building’s entrance.
