New Deal/WPA Art in Sturgis, SD

Most of the post office works of art were funded under the Treasury Department's Section commissions. Those works that were created using TRAP funds are so indicated. Although the WPA funded the construction of postoffice buildings, the artwork was not WPA but was usually produced underthe Section or TRAP programs.
