April 18, 2021

The Richmond Museum’ s newest asset, the Arnautoff “Richmond Industrial City” mural was installed in the Museum last fall, and the Museum reopened on March 26, 2021. 

See Victor Arnautoff – Richmond: Industrial City Mural – Richmond Museum of History In 2014, the staff at the Richmond Museum of History learned from longtime member Fran Cappelletti that a mural had once graced the post office lobby. “Richmond: Industrial City’”created by Victor Arnautoff commissioned by the U.S. Treasury Section of Fine Arts, had been installed at the downtown post office in April 1941. A protege of Diego Rivera, Arnautoff, a prominent figure in New Deal art, is perhaps best known for his role as the artistic director of the extensive murals at Coit Tower in nearby San Francisco.

The Museum is open Fri, Sat, Sun from 1-4, 400 Nevin Avenue.
