Torrington High School Murals – Torrington WY

Description

“Wyoming schools also benefited from the WPA Federal Art Project [WPA/FAP], which was responsible for a number of murals painted inside the buildings. Although the list of school murals is incomplete, it includes four panels in the Torrington High School auditorium executed by Ernest Stevens of Van Tassell …”

“The Torrington panels were removed from the old high school when it was sold by the district and were cleaned, restored and installed in the new high school building around 2005.”
