Project type: Art Works, Sculptures
Artists: Carl L. SchmitzView Project in a Separate Window
This large wooden sculpture “Singing Thanksgiving” by Carl L. Schmitz was completed in 1946. Schmitz was one of two artists to win a Federal Works Agency competition to produce art for the post office in 1941.
The statues were moved out of the original post office in 2011 before it was privatized. They may now be located in the East York post office. Confirmation is needed.
