Milford Zornes Mural - Claremont CA
Milford Zornes painted an enormous oil-on-canvas mural, “California Landscape”, in the Claremont CA post office. The 58′ x 3’4″ mural wraps around all four walls of the lobby of the post office, appearing as more of a frieze than a mural. It tells the history of the Claremont CA area.
The mural was funded by the Treasury Relief Arts Program in 1937 and completed sometime in 1939. Zornes was assisted by other painters, including George Biddle.
