New Deal/WPA Art in Gleason, Tennessee

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.

The mural in the Gleason, TN Post Office is entitled "Gleason Agriculture." It was painted in 1942 by artist Anne Poor.
The mural's dimensions
are 13' x 5'6."

This was one of the last murals completed in Tennessee under the Section.
