Event Description

From 1936 to 1943, the United States faced deep economic challenges brought about by the Great Depression and the impending threat of a second world war. During this time, the Works Projects Administration, a department of the U.S. government established by Franklin D. Roosevelt as part of the New Deal, produced over 35,000 posters related to government sponsored health, safety and tourism programs. On view are a selection of these posters which illustrate a period of significant social and economic change in the United States.
