Charles Kassler

Los Angeles, CA

"Charles Kassler, who had studied art at Princeton, traveled extensively and apprenticed under a fresco painter in France, completed “Pastoral California” the large mural on the western wall of Plummer Auditorium in 1934. The mural, like many of the buildings at Fullerton College, was commissioned by the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression. The WPA gave over eight million unemployed Americans jobs in its eight-year existence. “Pastoral California” was one of the two largest frescoes commissioned by the WPA."
