News-Herald: Gregory Wittkopp, director of the Cranbrook Center for Collections and Research, will give a presentation on the Depression-era Lincoln Park Post office mural, on Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Lincoln Park Historical Museum, 1335 Southfield Road.
The mural entitled, “Hauling in the Net,” was created in 1939-1940 by acclaimed Michigan artist Zoltan Sepeshy in his studio at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. Sepeshy was an instructor at the academy beginning in 1936. He later served as departmental director at Cranbrook and as its second President, retiring in 1966. He died in 1974 at age 76. The finished tempera mural, measuring 5 feet by nearly 14 feet, was installed on the west wall of the post office lobby, above the entrance to the postmaster’s office.
