In the 1930s, President Roosevelt's New Deal Administration instituted work relief programs to create jobs for workers of every sector of the economy. The Federal Art Project put visual artists to work; in Connecticut 173 artists produced mural, easel paintings, and documented American craft for the Index of American Design. Join curator Cynthia Roznoy for a gallery tour of this exhibition that includes samples of each aspect of the project.
