Morganton News Herald: Local organization highlights historic post office murals

New-to-me: a database of murals in the Blue Ridge Parkway area. “A local organization is sharing its love for an artistic part of history. During America’s Great Depression, more than 5,000 jobs for artists were created by the federal government through the New Deal, according to researchers with the Appalachian Mural Trail, an organization which seeks out and promotes murals in western North Carolina. These artists produced more than 225,000 works of art in post offices throughout the nation.”
