"The Zuni Potters"
“The McKinley County Courthouse, itself a New Deal arts project, houses 19 pieces of New Deal art, and murals, tile work, lamps, and furniture by New Deal artists and crafts workers grace the courthouses interior.” (www.co.mckinley.nm.us)
“Inside the lobby, Indian motifs are featured in the tile wainscoting, lettered signs, pendant lighting fixtures, and Pueblo-style paintings on the plaster walls, all set off by hand-made wooden furniture and oil paintings by New Mexican artists.”(www.co.mckinley.nm.us/courthouse_project.htm)
One of the WPA Federal Art Projects murals in the building is this 1942 mural “The Zuni Potters” by Anna Keener Wilton.
