September 2016

This month, we've restored a vintage Works Projects Administration poster from the NYC Art Project. Created in the 1930's, the WPA produced millions of public sector jobs and is responsible for many of the roads and public buildings still around today.

Included in the WPA was Federal Project Number One, which employed artists, writers, musicians, and actors. This is one example of many forms of art from that era.
