Description

Artist Lorser Feitelson painted two murals, “Henrick Hudson” and “Daniel Boone,” flanking the auditorium stage at Hooper Avenue Elementary School in Los Angeles, CA. The murals—now missing—were likely funded by the WPA Federal Art Project (FAP), as Stanton Macdonald-Wright’s mosaic above the doors to the school auditorium was in 1936-37.
