Lynn Fausett’s early education included studies in geology and mining engineering. He left Utah to study mural and fresco painting in New York, Italy, and France. Under sponsorship by the Works Progress Administration, he completed a series of murals depicting historical Western landscapes, many of which hang in numerous public service buildings across the country. Here, Fausett pulls together his love of landscapes, geology, and mining to depict a scene at the Kennecott Copper Mines.
