Transylvania County Library Mural – Brevard NC

Description

The Transylvania County Library in Brevard, North Carolina houses a 1941 Section of Fine Arts mural commissioned for the city’s old post office: “Good News,” painted by Pietro Lazzari. The medium is glazed tempera.

The mural remained in its original location, which served as a post office until 1972 and then the now-former Transylvania County Library building, until 2006.
