WPA Mural by African American Artist Damaged During Move


WPA Mural by African American Artist

WPA mural done about 1945

I recently evaluated a mural in an ex-bank building. As they were moving out a filing cabinet scrapped across a historic mural from 1945 and put a big gash in it. See the scratch in the right side?  I was called by an insurance broker to drive 2 hours to inspect it, look it over, give an estimate to make the damage disappear and write up the reports.
