Lost WPA Mural: Found, Conserved, and Installed in San Francisco Bay Museum

By Scott M. Haskins

Just across the Bay from San Francisco, the small town of Richmond, California has been inspired by the enthusiasm of the Richmond Museum of History and Culture’s executive director, Melinda McCrary, and raised the resources to save, protect and restore an abandoned mural lost in storage after its removal from the Richmond post office during a 1970s renovation. The excellent quality modernist mural was originally painted under the Work Projects Administration in 1941 by Russian immigrant artist, Victor Arnautoff.
