A 30-foot windowed wall at Artesia Public Library proudly displays a 1952 Peter Hurd mural.  Using fresco al secco techniques, Hurd painted the mural on a lobby wall in a downtown Houston building owned by Prudential Insurance.  When the building was slated for demolition by a subsequent owner, an anonymous benefactor had the mural preserved and the wall engineered for removal from the building and transport to Artesia for placement in the library for permanent display.  The mural is befitting of a library as attached lettering reads “The Future Belongs to Those Who Prepare for it.” To learn more click on the Library or the Artesia Arts and Cultural logos above.
