Film Screening: The New Deal for Artists

  • Time: 7–8:30pm

During the Great Depression, the New Deal was created to put America back to work. From 1935-1942, Federal Project Number One, a special branch of the Works Progress Administration, was part of this initiative and gave grants to provide work for nearly 40,000 members of the cultural arts community, including artist Doris Lee who painted murals at the US Treasury Department. This newly rediscovered, remastered film, narrated by Orson Welles, explores the history of this program.
