Viroqua, WI 54665
Title of the mural “War Party”
Artists: Forrest Flower
Today’s featured post office is Viroqua Wisconsin. And what a beauty and kind of disturbing one at the same time. Read on for more.
My first though was how large the painting is. I’m a bad judge of dimensions but the mural stretches all the way to the ceiling and down both sides of the postmasters office door. My second though was how violent the subject appears. The colors are also dark adding to the overall feeling of this mural.
One thing I wasn’t prepared for was all the photographs of the past postmasters on the wall. This was an added treat and I photographed each photograph. I though it might be nice to have this here.
I took a lot of pictures since I ended up visiting this one twice, two weekends back to back in order to get inside the building. I hope you enjoy it.
Thanks for visiting
