Post Office (former) Mural – Glenwood Springs CO

Description

This large decorative map painted by Jenne Magafan and Edward Chavez was funded by the Treasury Relief Art Project (TRAP) for the Glenwood Springs post office in 1937. The mural remains in the original building which now houses the White River National Forest Building.

(The mural is in a cramped stairwell, hence the difficulty of photographing the full map, the acute angles of the photos and the poor lighting)
