The recent dedication ceremony for the Post Office Murals stamp pane is highlighted in a new USPS video.
The event took place at the Piggott, AR, Post Office, home to “Air Mail,” one of five Post Office murals featured on the 10-stamp pane.
“If you haven’t been in this Post Office today, go take a look at that mural. It is absolutely a phenomenal piece of art,” says Arkansas Parks and Recreation Chairman John Gill, one of the speakers at the event.
Piggott is one of dozens of Post Offices across the nation that are home to more than 1,400 other murals and sculptures first commissioned through President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal programs.
The video also shows Arkansas District Manager Tom Billington discussing how much it meant to local postal employees to host the ceremony.
“We’re proud of the service that we give, and the ability to host something like this for the organization and for the community is simply very pleasing to us,” he says.
