Description

This oil-on-canvas Section of Fine Arts mural entitled “Tempora Mutantur et Nos Mutamur in Illis” was painted for the old Fairfield, Connecticut post office by Alice Flint in 1938. The mural was restored in 2013 and moved to a second floor conference room of Sullivan-Independence Hall (Fairfield’s main municipal office building) when the original New Deal post office was sold to private interests.
