"American Educational System"
The West Pullman School was established in the late 19th century. During the 1930s, the WPA funded two murals for the school auditorium. The roughly 5′ x 10′ oil on canvas murals, by Ralph Christian Henriksen, are entitled “American Educational System” and “Americanization of Immigrants.”
The school closed at the end of the school year in 2013. Current status and future plans for the murals are unknown to the Living New Deal.
