Gleason, TN 38229
Title of the artwork: “Gleason Agriculture”
Artist: Anne Poor
Today’s featured post office is Gleason Tennessee. A wonderful small town with a great post office.
This is just my opinion, but I have to say it. I love post office murals, but this one for some reason just doesn’t do it for me. Maybe its the all dark green feel to the work or maybe the black and white style of the figures on the right side of the mural. I’m having a hard time loving this one.
The front of the building is not necessarily my favorite either. The large white border to the windows and the style of the building is not aesthetically pleasing to me. But what do I know? I still love the fact that this post office has not closed and that the mural is still viewable for the public to enjoy. Which is much more than can be said for some other towns in Tennessee
What are your thoughts on this building? What are your thoughts on this mural? Do you like or dislike this one?
