Charles Ward Exhibit

By: Charles Ward (1900 - 1962)

The Historical Society and Trenton Courthouse community, with the cooperation of GSA, presented a historical art exhibit featuring the Charles Ward Murals. The murals are recognized as some of the finest created as part of the U.S. Public Works of Art Project. The mural installed over the main door of the Clarkson S. Fisher Courthouse in Trenton is the first Post Office installation in the United States of a WPA mural.

Charles Ward completed two others for the same building, entitled “Rural Delivery” and “The Second Battle of Trenton.” In addition to the Ward murals, there will be an exhibition of many of Ward’s other works, graciously on loan from the Ward family.

Attendees joined the Trenton community and celebrated the works of its native son, Charles W. Ward, at a reception on Thursday, October 11, 2007, 6:00-8:00 pm in the main hall of the Clarkson S. Fisher Courthouse, Trenton, N.J.
