The journey to identify, locate and restore Milford's art commissioned under the Federal Works Projects Administration (WPA) has been a lengthy one, filled with intrigue.
The project began under the auspices of Milford Arts Council's first director, William Meddick, an artist with a lifelong interest in WPA art. In 1986, when Milford's Central Grammar School was being demolished, Meddick and then Board of Education Arts Coordinator Frank Vespi rescued a large portion of a WPA mural, “They Shall Pass This Way But Once,” designed by Frank Rutkoski and painted by Louis Agostini.
