"Oil Fields of Graham"
Mural entitled “Oil Fields of Graham” painted by Alexandre Hogue, University of Tulsa Art Professor Emeritus, in 1939. The mural “depicts the area’s economic base, oil and natural gas production, and agriculture”(Old Post Office Museum and Art Center, opomac.net). The mural depicts E. S. Graham, the founder of Graham, standing in front of Standpipe Mountain (located in the center of Graham), and oil field workers (Nancy Lorance, American Oil & Gas Historical Society). The mural was painted over during a repaint of the post office, but restored and preserved.
