Peter Hurd Mural

The name of the mural is "Come Sunlight out of the Rain to Bring Green Life out of the Earth." It was painted in 1942. Mr. Hurd was born in Roswell NM and used local people as models for his work and there are still people around that posed for him. He lived for years in the Hondo valley about 50 miles from Alamogordo.

His work hangs in musems in New Mexico, Chicago, New York and as far away as Edinburgh Scotland.
