4-H Promotion Compendium: Head-heart-hands-health Mural

A National Compendium of 4-H Promotion and Visibility over the Past Century

Head-heart-hands-health Mural

Perma-Link »

Gracing the spacious lobby of J. C. Penney Hall at the National 4-H Youth Conference Center in Chevy Chase, Maryland is the 8 ft. by 16 ft. mural – Head-Heart-Hands-Health. Painted by the eminent muralist, Dean Fausett, in the American genre, the mural captures the evolution of 4-H and the J. C. Penney Company during the 20th Century. Prominent in the mural is James Cash Penney, founder of the company that bears his name. He stands with a youth and his blue ribboned dairy heifer, reflecting Mr. Penney's benevolent support of 4-H and the 4-H tradition of recognizing effort.

Coming into the lobby of J. C. Penney Hall, the central building on the 4-H Center campus, one cannot help but observe this stunning mural. It nearly fills the entire wall to the right as you enter from the columned front of the building.

Visitors – no matter whether having 4-H backgrounds or no connection with 4-H whatsoever – are intrigued by the mural and the story it tells.
