Town Hall Murals – Darien CT

Description

The Public Works of Art Project (PWAP) created a set of murals for what was then the Junior-Senior High School in Darien, Connecticut, now its town hall.

“In Darien, approximately 11  artists, Robert Pallesen, James Daugherty, Arthur Gibson Hull, Remington Schulyer, Loran Wilford and William J. Schaldach among them, were employed to create artwork, most of which was done in the town’s schools (today’s Town Hall building was the town’s High School in 1934).”
