Murals at Joseph C. Wilson Commencement Academy

Joseph C. Wilson Commencement Academy was originally called West High School. Carl W. Peters received the commission for the West High School murals in 1937/38 and chose as his subject matter the early years of Rochester history. White Woman of the Genesee and Indian Allen are now located in the auditorium of the present-day Joseph C. Wilson Commencement Academy.
