DuPage Historical Society Wheaton, Illinois

During the W.P.A. Period, two murals were sponsored by the DuPage Historical Society in Wheaton, Illinois. They were done by Otto Hake, a noted W.P.A. muralist. These murals are entitled “Pueblo and Navajo Indians” and “Indians of the Region”. Both of the oil paintings were removed from the Society’s building during a renovation and were installed at the DuPage County Building #421 where they are on public display.
