Town Hall Murals – Provincetown MA

Description

“Ross Moffett studied with Hawthorne and was one of the first year-round painters in Provincetown, moving into Days Lumberyard in 1914. “Gathering Beach Plums” and “Spreading Nets,” his large murals in the Town Hall entrance were painted in 1934 under the federal Public Works of Art Project of the Depression era. An easel painter and monotype artist, Moffett undertook only one other mural commission in his career.” (IAmProvincetown.com)
