The Centre County Historical Society is pleased to host the traveling exhibit titled "A Common Canvas: Pennsylvania's New Deal Post Office Murals". In 1933, the administration of newly elected President Franklin Roosevelt launched an ambitious program to place murals and sculptures in post offices across the country. "A Common Canvas" will exhibit 15 photographic images of this public art, featuring themes of agriculture, industry, and airmail with a special emphasis on artworks from central Pennsylvania. Also displayed are early airmail objects and images from the Centre County Region.
