Lyons Post Office

This ordinary Post Office houses a very extraordinary piece of history. The Lyons Post Office is home to one of the very few remaining sculptures commissioned by the Section of Fine Arts, a federal government program created to commission artist to create public paintings and sculptures for public buildings, including many rural post offices. Once considered to be white-collar work done by boondogglers, the artwork and murals that still exist are modern-day treasures. Turn to the right when you enter the Post Office, the sculpture is hanging on the wall.  Artist: Albino Manca, terra-cotta relief, Title: Wild Duck and Deer 1942.
