Fond Du Lac, WI 54935
Title of the artwork: “Birds and Animals of the Northwest”
Artist: Boris Gilbertson
Type: Limestone Relief
On Saturday’s I like to highlight some of the older buildings and their artwork. The former Fond Du Lac post office is a perfect example of a building with interesting artwork. The difference about this building is that the artwork is on the exterior for all to enjoy 24×7.
The old post office building is massive. I briefly stopped inside to take a look at the lobby, but there really wasn’t anything noticeable since the new owners have purchased the building.
There are eleven reliefs and I’m wondering if anyone knows if each one has a specific name? Do you have any more info regarding these? What have you read or seen in regards to them?
Thanks for stopping by
