"Art cannot get away from its period and time...

Art and history are inseparable and dependent on each other."

MURALS

A special mural which Eugene Kingman painted in 1948 was displayed in the New YorkTimes lobby for a number of years. It has now been donated and shipped to the Joslyn Castle in Omaha Nebraska. A front page article in the Omaha World Herald describes this event. An earlier article announced the painting’s original installation.

Eugene Kingman also won a major commission sponsored by the United States Treasury Art Project to create murals at three U.S. Post Offices.
