The WheelwrightThe mural as installed at the Des Moines Federal Courthouse
The Treasury Section of Fine Arts commissioned “the Wheelwright” painted by artist Daniel Rhodes in 1942 for the Clayton Branch Post Office in St. Louis, Missouri. The mural was removed from the post office in 1971 and relocated to the Des Moines Federal Courthouse, where it is currently on view.
Contributor note: Daniel Rhodes is a relative of mine. I have researched all of his mural work.
This mural was originally painted/installed at the Clayton Branch Post Office, St. Louis, MO.
