Virginia Chism Darce was a watercolorist and artist in the Spokane, Washington area.

She also contributed murals, stained glass murals, and mosaics at the historic Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood, Oregon, built by the WPA in 1936 and 1937. Virginia's famed Paul Bunyan mural was featured in the concluding episode of the PBS series, Lodges of the Pacific Northwest, which visits historic lodges at Mount Rainier, Mount Hood, Oregon Caves, and Crater Lake. Further down this page are photos of her Timberline Lodge artwork and a shot of Virginia and her assistants working on the mural.
