Millard Sheets and Susan Hertel (Lautmann), “Panorama of the Valley,” 1956. Paint on Canvas.

Pomona First Federal Bank commissioned Millard Sheets, a proud Pomona Valley native, to paint this 77 foot mural. Given free choice of his subject for the project, Sheets decided to portray the history of the valley, illustrating the native people of the region in scenes from the 18th century through the founding of the City of Pomona in 1888.
