Verona Burkhard comes from a family of artists. Her grandfather, Giovanni Turini, created sculptures for New York’s Washington Square and Central Parks. She studied under Boardman Robinson, a post office muralist featured earlier. You can see a couple of her mural studies at the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s website. You can also see one of her paintings at the website for the Art Center of Western Colorado (though someone forgot to complete the page, leaving behind the telltale sign of a designer who hasn’t been given content; in my other life, I’m a web developer; give me a shout ACWC, I can help).
Burkhard created three post office murals: James and Granville Stuart Prospecting in Deer Lodge Valley – 1858 (Deer Lodge, Montana), Battle of Kings Mountain (Kings Mountain, North Carolina), and Powell’s Agriculture Resulting for the Shoshone Irrigation Project (Powell, Wyoming).
