The exterior of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) building is enhanced by several works of art commissioned by the Treasury Department’s Section of Fine Arts in 1938.
Above the entrances are rectangular bas-relief panels that represent foreign trade, agriculture, shipping, and industry: “Construction” by Chaim Gross (1938); “Shipping” by Robert Laurent (1938); “Agriculture” by Concetta Scaravaglione (1938); “Foreign Trade” by Carl L. Schmitz (1938).
There are also two bas-relief medallions with eagles by Sidney Waugh located on the northwest corner elevation of the building (not shown here).
