Labor mural gets a new home in Augusta

By Dennis Hoey, Morning Sentinel

The controversial labor mural that once hung in the lobby of the Maine Department of Labor in Augusta — and became the subject of a lawsuit when¬†Gov. Paul LePage¬†ordered it removed — has found a new home.

The mural will reside for at least the next three years in the Cultural Building atrium that serves as the entryway to the Maine State Museum in Augusta.

Officials from the Department of Labor and the Maine State Museum made the announcement in a joint news release Sunday night.

LePage has no objections to the 11-panel, 7-foot-tall mural being moved to the museum, his spokeswoman said.
