Tom Lea Mural Headed to New Mexico For Restoration

A well-known mural is headed to New Mexico for restoration.

The Tom Lea mural was removed from the downtown Odessa post office on Thursday morning.

The mural will be going to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where it will undergo 10 weeks of intensive restoration before being returned to Odessa and housed in the Ellen Noel Art Museum on a 25 year loan from the U.S. Postal Service.

Funding for the project was provided by the Odessa Council for the Arts & Humanities.
