Norwalk’s Hidden Treasures
In partnership with the Norwalk Arts Commission, the Norwalk Historical Society invites you to discover the 31 restored WPA murals at Norwalk City Hall with additional murals at other locations. From 1935 to 1941, WPA artists created more than 50 works of art for Norwalk’s public schools, libraries and post offices.
While much of the WPA art nationally has been lost or destroyed, the murals and panels created for City Hall – the former Norwalk High School – as well as for other public buildings, comprise one of the largest and most important collections of restored Depression-era art in the country. The murals offer a window into our community’s past as well as a connection to the present.
