  1. I believe the Moline post office is closed and do not know the fate of the WPA painting housed in it. Do you know what will happen to it?

      Hi Terri, operations at that post office were temporarily suspended pending air duct work, which I witnessed being done in mid-September. I think the building should have reopened by this point.
