These artists cre- ated murals to be displayed in all three Delaware counties. Five such murals were created and placed at the 01d Sussex Cen- tral High School in Georgetown. With the creation of the new high school near Stockley, the murals were given to the Georgetown Historical Society. Presently the three smaller ones are on display in the Georgetown Room of the Lynch Building on the grounds ofe Marvel Carriage Museum. The two larger ones are in stor- age for future presentation in the proposed new Carriage House. Dr. Joan Short of Wilmington will give an illustrated talk at 7:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 3, on Delaware's WPA murals. She will comment on their presentation and display, and inform attendees of restoration efforts of the art- work that have occurred in New Castle and Kent counties.
