Under the auspices of the WPA Federal Art Project (FAP), artist Eugenia Everett sculpted for Brockton Avenue Elementary School in Los Angeles, CA, a statue now located at George Washington Preparatory High School.
The sculpture is of “Wynken, Blinken, and Nod,” characters in Eugene Field’s Dutch lullaby. Fries Avenue Elementary School (Los Angeles, CA), has a copy of the same statue.
According to a 1937 article in the Los Angeles School Journal, “Eugenia Everett is a wistful young lady, working in her aunt’s studio on Manhattan Place” (Wells, p. 25).
