"Power" by Eric Mosein former Samuel Gompers HS
The building contains a 1936 fresco by Eric Mose entitled “Power.” It was presumably done under the auspices of the WPA’s Federal Arts Project. The location of the mural in the building is unknown to us.
The former Samuel Gompers High School now houses several smaller schools of the NY Public Schools:
|New Visions Charter High School for the Humanities II|
|H.E.R.O. High (Health, Education, and Research Occupations High School)|
|Mott Haven Community High School|
