Post office mural   center
by Carlos Lopez
In Bounty, a 1940 mural at the Paw Paw post office, University of Michigan painting professor Carlos Lopez celebrated in cartoon style the fruits of workers' labor and the joy of their social interaction in America. Bounty is part of one of the most productive, as well as controversial, programs, which was the Treasury Section of Fine Arts, which selected artists by jury and commissioned them to paint murals in U.S. Post Offices. The State of Michigan was the beneficiary of more than fifty Section post office "murals," as well as numerous other institutional painting and sculpture commissions.
Location 125 N. Kalamazoo St. Paw Paw, Michigan, MI
