A 38′ x 8′ oil on canvas depicting a farm nestled in the Marin hills, “The Golden Hills of Marin” was painted by Maurice del Mue with funding from the WPA Federal Art Project. The mural “was removed from the wall of the high school library in the 1960s and rolled up face-in, causing extensive damage and compression cracks.” However a major restoration effort recently returned the mural to its rightful place.
