AD?PT A 
MURAL Restoring Milford’s WPA Artwork
They Shall Pass This Way But Once
by Frank Rutkoski and Louis Agostini
Remember this mural? It once greeted 
students as they entered Milford’s Central 
Grammar School on West River Street. In 
1986, when Milford’s Central Grammar 
School was being demolished, Bill Meddick 
and Frank Vespi, then Executive Director of 
Milford Fine Arts and Board of Education 
Arts Coordinator respectively, rescued a 
large portion of it – approximately 7’8” x 5’.
The mural, produced under the WPA 
program, was installed in the entrance of 
Central Grammar School in April 1940. The 
WPA (Works Projects Administration) was 
started by President Franklin Delano 
Roosevelt in 1933 and ran for some 10 
years. It employed struggling out-of-work 
artists to produce artwork, such as murals,
during the Great Depression. 
Several nearly Connecticut towns, including
Stamford, Norwalk, Greenwich and New 
Haven, have raised money to restore their 
WPA art, preserving their precious heritage. 
Join us in adopting They Shall Pass This 
Way But Once so it can again be hung in a 
public place where we all can enjoy it. Make 
a donation today. 
Donors contributing $500+ will be 
commemorated on an accompanying plaque.
