Foley Square

Katz was commissioned in 1980 by the US General Service Administration's Art in Architecture Program to create an oil on canvas mural in the new United States Attorney’s Building at Foley Square, New York City. The Art in Architecture Program oversees the commissioning of artworks for new federal buildings nationwide. The mural, located inside the Silvio V. Mollo Building at Cardinal Hayes Place & Park Row, is now part of the GSA Art in Architecture & Fine Arts Collection. It is 20 feet high by 20 feet wide.
