Eric Mose at work on mural for Lincoln HospitalEric Mose mural at Lincoln Hospital, the Bronx
In 1938 Eric Mose created murals for Lincoln Hospital (also known as the Lincoln Medical and Health Center) in the Bronx with funding from the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Art Project (WPA/FAP) (Smithsonian Archives of American Art).
The hospital (then located at 141st St. and Southern Blvd. in the Bronx) moved to its present location on 149th St. in 1976. The mural’s current status is unknown, but it was probably lost in the demolition of the old hospital c. 2010.
