George Snow Hill

George Snow Hill was a painter and sculptor, but is best known as a muralist. He founded the Hill School of Art in St. Petersburg in 1946. His work is considered New Deal Muralist. Locally, he is best known for his infamous mural at City Hall, which was destroyed in 1960s and is still awaiting replacement. A resident of St. Pete from 1932 until his death in 1969, Snow Hill was an active member in the Art Club, participating in numerous public talks and lectures. He had a show there in 1946, which was his first solo show in 15 years. He then had a two-person show with his wife, Polly Knipp Hill in 1954.
