Sylvania, OH 43560
Title of the artwork: “Trilobites”
Artists: Melik Finkle
Type: Plaster Cast
A new post office, I thought to myself as I pulled up to this one. I was a bit confused because my sources mentioned there would be artwork. So naturally I had in my mind I would be visiting an older square 1930/1940 building. However, that was not the case for the Sylvania Ohio post office.
Needless to say I was really surprised to find the plaster relief artwork inside the new building. Not quite the fascination of a mural but since the new post office moved and installed the plaster relief, its much more accessible. The artwork is protected behind glass and set at a nice easy level for people to really get up close to the work. I really enjoyed observing this up close.
Having it behind glass was a challenge when I was taking pictures but at least I was able to get them. I’m delighted the post office moved the artwork into the new building as opposed to leaving it behind at the old building. Just in case you missed the original building I posted the pictures of this one yesterday.
