Description

Henry Simon painted this oil on canvas mural, entitled “The Wright Brothers in Ohio,” in 1941. Sometimes mis-attributed to the W.P.A., the work was commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. The mural was painted for the then-new (now-former) post office when the town of Fairborn was called Osborn. The work has since been relocated to the current post office in the community.
