First Day City:  The First Day of Issue Ceremony was held at Piggott Main Post Office in Piggott, Arkansas, the location of one of the murals on the stamps.

About the Post Office Murals set:  Includes five stamps celebrating the artwork of muralists tasked with beautifying American post offices and boosting morale during the Great Depression. Each of the stamp designs pictures a different mural from a US post office: “Kiowas Moving Camp” (1936) Anadarko, Oklahoma; “Mountains and Yucca” (1937) Deming, New Mexico; “Antelope” (1939) Florence, Colorado; “Sugarloaf Mountain” (1940) Rockville, Maryland; and “Air Mail” (1941) Piggott, Arkansas.

History the stamp represents:  Anadarko, Oklahoma, is home to a range of cultures. It is also the self-proclaimed “Indian Capital of the Nation.” It hosts the annual American Indian Exposition and is home to the National Hall of Fame for Famous American Indians, Southern Plains Indian Museum, and the Indian City USA Cultural Center.

Today, Anadarko represents the different cultures of the Native American tribes who once called the Great Plains home. These include the Apache, Cheyenne, Comanche, Kiowa, Osage, and many more. With help from the modern descendants of these peoples, Anadarko features recreations of historic Native American camps, displays of old artifacts, artwork, and more.

One of the most famous art pieces in Anadarko is the mural Kiowas Moving Camp. This painting can be found in the town’s post office and was created by famous Kiowa artist Stephen Mopope. Mopope painted the mural in 1936 as part of a New Deal program to boost morale during the Great Depression. Mopope’s mural pictures a band of Kiowa on horseback carrying supplies and building materials. This painting is a beautiful reminder of the strength and endurance of the Great Plains tribes throughout history.
