The permanent art displays in Willard Library have stories of their own to tell. Click on the pieces below to learn more about them.
Works Progress Administration (WPA) artist Robert J. Smith painted the murals for the Montgomery County Public Library in Dayton, Ohio. The pieces were abandoned when that library moved to a new building, and were acquired by Evansville Public Museum Curator Sigfried Weng. After being displayed in the Museum for several years, the murals were permanently loaned to Willard Library, where they now hang.
