Description

Junior High School 113 (“Richard R. Green”, formerly Olinville Junior High) contains a two-panel oil on canvas mural entitled “Industry and Farming” painted by Edna Hershman in 1941. The murals were funded by the WPA Federal Art Project.

The label of the archival photo pictured here reads:

Edna Hershman went to the School of Fine Arts at Yale on several scholarships. She won medals from the Beaux Arts in mural painting. One of her murals hangs in the nurses’ recreation room of the Riverside Hospital on North Brother Island. She is at present executing a mural “Constructive Effort of Man” for the Olinville Junior High School in the Bronx.”

  1. I attended Olinville JHS 113 in the late 50s. The Principal was Mr. Miles. It was a great school. Does anyone remember the school song?
