The oil-on-canvas mural “Sugarloaf Mountain” was painted for Rockville, Maryland’s old post office, which is now a police station.
From the Peerless Rockville blog: “The interior of Rockville’s Post Office is beautiful as well as functional. Fifteen foot ceilings look down on terrazzo floors and walls, the original bulletin boards and postal boxes, bronze grilles, and a handsome mural. Most striking is the mural of Sugarloaf Mountain by Judson Smith, which was sponsored by the Treasury Department’s Fine Arts Section with funds based on one percent of the total construction cost.” (http://www.peerlessrockville.org/)
