At the time Olive Rush created Study for Antelope Dancers, Rush was involved in several mural projects for private homes, schools, and federal buildings in New Mexico and surrounding states. Many of her fresco commissions included aspects of Native Americanl life, as well as local flora and fauna. In 1939, Rush collaborated with students from the Indian School to create murals depicting Indian ceremonies on the entrance walls of Maisel's Indian Trading Post in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico, the largest trading post along Route 66. The murals are still on view today.
