Description

The post office in Jasper, Texas houses a New Deal mural entitled “Industries of Jasper.” Painted by Alexander Levin and completed in 1939, the work was commissioned by the Treasury Section of Fine Arts. The mural, since relocated, was created for Jasper’s nearby Depression-era post office building.
