Monroe Historical Museum Mural – Monroe MI

Description

This oil on canvas mural, entitled “Romance of Monroe,” was completed by Ralf Henricksen in 1938 with funding from the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. The mural is currently displayed in the lobby of the Monroe Historical Museum, located in the old post office, which dates to 1910. From the New Deal Art Registry: “In 1972, the mural was moved to the Monroe Community College library when a new post office was built. The mural has since been moved back to the original building it was painted for but not the original location over the Postmaster’s door.”
