Piggott WPA Post Office Mural

Piggott WPA Post Office Mural

What to know

The Piggott Post Office is one of 21 Arkansas post offices that had murals installed in their lobbies between 1939 and 1942 as part of a New Deal art project. The mural was painted by Iowan Dan Rhodes. The subject matter of the Piggott mural is "Air Mail," which Rhodes thought was "of unusual significance to the smaller and more isolated community, linking them as it does to the most distant centers." The mural was added to the National Register on August 14, 1998. The Piggott mural was one of five post office murals from throughout the country selected in 2019 by the United States Postal Service for a "Forever" stamp series.
