James Brooks, "Flight" (1942) Depicting man's quest to conquer the skies, this last and largest mural produced under the auspices of the WPA was painted over by Port Authority bureaucrats -- upset by its social realist style and strong depiction of workers -- in 1952 at the height of McCarthy anti-communist fervor. It wouldn't see the light of day again until 1980, when amateur aviation historian Geoffrey Arend raised the funds to uncover it. #ohny #openhousenewyork #wpa #murals
