Description

A large oil-on-canvas mural hangs at one end of the lobby of the Oxnard central post office on A Street. It was presumably commissioned by the Section on Fine Arts of the Treasury Department, which built the post office in 1939.

The 3′ x 18′ mural, titled “Oxnard Panorama”, was painted by Daniel Mendelowitz, a Stanford University art professor from 1934 to 1969.
