Artist Adrien Machefert painted a mural, “Pilgrim’s Harvest Festival,” at Ann Street Elementary School in Los Angeles, CA. He was funded by the Federal Arts Project (FAP).
“Adrien Machefert, a man past fifty, was born in San Jose, California, and started drawing for San Francisco newspapers at the age of seventeen. Following fourteen years doing portrait and landscape painting on the Island of Majorca, Mr. Machefert returned two and a half years ago to California and has since been working for FAP most of the time” (Wells, p. 22).
Machefert’s other New Deal–funded murals in the region include “All Nations” at Ninth Street Elementary School in Los Angeles, CA, and “Life and Travels of Richard Henry Dana, Jr.” (1934) at Dana Middle School in San Pedro, CA.
