Item details

This 14′ x 125′ glazed tile mural was created by Sargent Johnson in 1939 with the help of FAP (Federal Art Project) funds. The east end is incomplete because of artist protests over plans for a private restaurant on the site. This African-American artist takes pride in using a variety of media, including ceramics, clay, oil, stone, terra-cotta, watercolor, and wood.
