Rockwood, TN 37854
Title of the artwork: “Wild Life”
Artists: Christian Heinrich
Type: Terra Cotta Reliefs
It’s not often that I get to showcase artwork other than murals. So when I come across something different like the terra-cotta reliefs get excited. The Rockwood Tennessee post office is one example of this wonderful find.
Calling all Rockwood Tennessee historians. I’ve been trying to find more historical information regarding this building and the artwork in the building. Other than some general google searching nothing of relevant is appearing. Does anything have more information regarding when the post office was built? Any historical pictures or post cards? Did you know the artist? Where you there when it was installed? So many questions.
Thanks for stopping by
