8. History of Flight at LaGuardia Airport

The American artist James Brooks was commissioned to produce a WPA mural of the history of flight for LaGuardia Airport—a mural that would become the largest of the program. In the 1950s, it was misinterpreted as Communist Propaganda and was painted over. It was later restored in the 1980s. The work is located in the oldest still active terminal in the U.S., the Marine Air Terminal.
