Thirsty Thursday: Federal Art Project

They say the Great Recession may be as bad as the Depression, so why not revive the Arts?  Today Charm shares these images from The Federal Art Project (FAP) which was  the visual arts arm of the Great Depression-era New Deal Works Progress Administration program in the “Untied” States. From 1935 until 1943 the federally funded artists created more than 200,000 separate works including really cool posters, murals and paintings. Some works still stand among the most-significant pieces of public art in the country.
