Julia Richman Educational Complex: Knott Mural – New York NY

Description

In 1936, Ben Knott completed an oil on canvas mural entitled ‘Decorative Map of the World’ for the fourth floor corridor, East School, of what was then Julia Richman High School, with funding from the Federal Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project (WPA/FAP).

The high school building that housed the mural has since been converted into the Julia Richman Education Complex. The building complex now serves as the site of six separate small schools.

The Living New Deal needs further information to determine the current status of the mural.

We welcome contributions of additional information on any New Deal project site.
