New Deal Murals: The Amarillo Competition

Tuesday, October 18, 2016, 7pm
Espino Conference Center, Sul Ross State University

Michael Grauer, Panhandle-Plains Historical Museum Associate Director for Curatorial Affairs/Curator of Art and Western Heritage presents the rollicking story of the 1940s Amarillo post office mural competition that had sixty-four contestants including El Paso artist Tom Lea. Julius Woeltz, who taught at Sul Ross from 1932-1936, won the competition and his every move in Amarillo was documented in the newspapers, from his needing a haircut to his unpolished workmen’s shoes!
