Nicolai Cikovsky was awarded three mural projects. In 1937, he created a large oil on canvas for the Silver Spring Post Office, Silver Spring, MD. He completed four murals for The Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building, Washington, DC, 1938. In 1939, he completed five tempera panels for the Post Office in Townsend, MD. All of these works survive, yet the Silver Springs canvas was moved to a new post office in 1981.
