State of Oregon Executive Building Mural (former Salem Post Office) – Salem OR

Description

This oil-on-canvas mural, entitled “Builders of Salem,” was painted in 1942 by Andrew McD. Vincent, with funding from the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. The original post office lobby was subdivided into Conference Rooms A & B when the building became the Executive Building, and the mural now hangs in Conference Room A (http://www.oregon.gov/DAS/EAM/pages/building_info/executive.aspx).

    The mural is not available to view for “a year” per the office assistant we talked to at the building. As noted, this is no longer a functioning post office.
