De Baca County Courthouse Murals 3
Under the auspices of the Public Works of Art Project (and not, as some sources site, the Treasury Section of Fine Arts), Russel Vernon Hunter painted three murals for the De Baca County Courthouse. The murals are on the second floor of the courthouse. Collectively entitled “The Last Frontier,” they depict several scenes from De Baca County’s history.
