If you are a post office muralist deep diver (I’m talking to you, Mary B), you’d better get comfy.
Alison Mason Kingsbury is unusual among the post office muralists in that a ton (in virtual weight) of her work is viewable online. Cornell University’s fabulous Digital Collection has 522 of Kingsbury’s works on its website. Don’t be quick to dismiss the work. There is some darned sketchy stuff in there — like books puncturing hearts (nothing can break a heart quite like a book), trees made of circus performers, an anthropomorphic ship, and a sad telephone.
Kingsbury made one post office mural: The Onion Fields (Canastota, New York).
