For a list of New Deal and WPA art in Wisconsin, follow this link. To see the post office mural from Lake Geneva, click here. In my post on the Lake Geneva post office mural I mention my "treasure" hunting and the sculptures of John Lopez. We decided this weekend that our first trip after my shoulder heals will be to Blue Mounds State Park in Minnesota with a side trip to Sioux Falls to see some of his sculptures in August! We'll spend a few days in Minnesota and then a few more days in Yankton, another place I'm excited to see thanks to the TV show "Deadwood". These new plans help ease the pain of the cancelled trip to Bayfield that would have focused on kayaking.

Black River Falls Post Office
While we were in the area I took advantage of the opportunity to stop in and see the New Deal mural in the US Post Office at Black River Falls. This oil on canvas mural is entitled "Lumbering–Black River Mill" and was painted by Frank E. Buffmire in 1939.
