New Deal/WPA Art in Belding,
Most of the post office works of art were funded under the Treasury
Department's Section commissions. Those works that were created using TRAP
funds are so indicated. Although the WPA funded the construction of post
office buildings, the artwork was not WPA but was usually produced under
the Section or TRAP programs. Unless indicated, these works of art are
located in the US Post Office building.
