Post Office (demolished) Relief – Fairport NY

Description

The historic post office building in Fairport, New York housed a example of New Deal artwork inside: a Treasury Section of Fine Arts-commissioned bronze relief entitled “The Harvest.” Henry Van Wolf completed the work in 1939, and it was installed in the post office lobby. The present whereabouts of the work is unknown to Living New Deal.

    It’s in the Perinton Post Office now. at routes 31 and 250, about 5 miles south of its original Fairport NY location

  2. This piece is now located at the Fairport Post Office at 770 Ayrault Rd. It was moved when the retail post office (formerly on Route 31) merged back into what used to be called the carrier annex.
