18. Myriads of Murals

To see the WPA Murals at the Norwalk City Hall, continue on Wall St., at the junction of Wall St. and East Ave., take a right on East Ave. City Hall is on your left.  Norwalk has one of the largest and most important collections of Depression-era WPA art in America today.  Initiated by President Roosevelt in the 1930’s, the WPA paid artists to create art in public spaces and today these works represent a unique window to America’s past.  Most of Norwalk’s WPA collection resides in City Hall.
