Murals at Charlotte High School

The most ambitious group of murals Carl W. Peters painted was for Charlotte High School in 1942. The eight murals were designed to fill the walls of the school’s auditorium, where they remain to this day. Peters’ series captures his understanding of the history of the Lake Ontario region, starting from the Native Americans who originally inhabited the land, to the final scene he called the “Triumph of the American Ideal.”
