Helen Lundeberg, assisted by Donald Totten, painted a two-panel mural at George Washington Preparatory High School in Los Angeles, CA. The panels, titled “Valley Forge 1777” and “Yorktown 1781,” are located in the auditorium’s interior foyer. Completed in 1941, the mural was funded by the Federal Art Project (FAP).
Lundeberg’s other FAP works in the region include a pair of murals, “Quests of Mankind” (1940), at Canoga Park High School in Canoga Park, CA; a pair of murals, “History of Southern California” and “History of Early California” (1941) at Venice High School in Los Angeles, CA; and a mural, “History of Transportation” (1942), in Inglewood, CA.
