Post office sculpture
The post office in Chagrin Falls, Ohio houses an example of New Deal artwork. Created by Moissaye Marans, the work was commissioned by the federal Treasury Section of Fine Arts for the then-new post office in town.
“In all, artwork was commissioned for 19 post offices in the Cleveland area. … [some] have been moved from their original locations. Three are in new post offices, including a wood carving, Stone Quarries, by Moissaye Marans in Chagrin Falls.”
