This fall, a special exhibition organized by the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum in celebration of the the first federally-funded art program will open at the Figge. Established in December 1933, the Public Works of Art Project (PWAP) was conceived as part of the New Deal—a series of economic recovery programs introduced by president Franklin Delano Roosevelt in response to the Great Depression. Over the course of seven months, the PWAP employed 3,749 artists and commissioned more than 15,000 works of art to adorn schools, libraries and other public buildings.
