Yellow Springs, OH 45387
Title of the artwork: “Yellow Springs – Preparation for Lifework”
Artists: Axel Horn
Today’s featured post office is Yellow Springs. This was a visit back in November of 2013. I remember this town bustling with people shopping. It was difficult to get external photos of the building.
It seemed I was the only one interested in the post office. I went inside to observe the mural. What struck me first was the single person in the piece. Then upon further observation you notice the young man is reading a book. Not only is he reading a book, but also reading it outside. This one happens to strike a chord with me as I really enjoy the outdoors. It also reminds me of hiking and camping.
So what do you like about this mural? What history or facts do you know about it?
