Description

The historic post office building in Farrell, Pennsylvania houses a Treasury Section of Fine Arts mural in the lobby. The mural, titled “Myths of Vulcan and Juno,” was painted by Virginia Wood (Riggs) in 1939. Unfortunately, the mural was painted over in 1966 and has thus effectively been destroyed.
