Mary E. Trivett (1868-1941) is most known for her completion of a large-scale mural which adorned the Woman's Building (and probably one for the Arkansas Building) at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. These murals are works in oil on canvas that are in numerous segments, which are part of the permanent collection of the Arkansas History Commission in Little Rock, AR, as well as appearing as part of a frieze in a the parlor of the Historic Drennen-Scott House in Van Buren, AR. (placed by the family following the display in the [Woman's/Arkansas] building?) The murals housed in these Arkansas collections are said to be from the Arkansas Building, and consist of pastel-toned skies with hughes of pinks, blues, greens, and golden yellows, with scrolling foliate decoration and attached groups of birds.
She married Charles V. Haight around 1897. In 1888-89 she attended the Art Academy of Cincinnati where she completed a course on sculpture. She is known to have completed sculptural decorations for the Episcopal churches in Cincinnati and Covington, OH. (date unknown) In 1932 she was still active in Cincinnati. She passed away in 1941, presumably in Ohio.
