A New Deal for Artists: Creating Art during the Great Depression

Between the years 1933 and 1945, the Federal government hired hundreds of artists who collectively created more than 100,000 works of art. Some were commissioned to create art for public spaces, depicting specific themes, while others were free to use their imaginations.
University of Arizona Museum of Art Docent Jacquelyn Feller will give this multi-media art talk presentation.

UAMA Art Lectures at the Library

Learn how artists use caricature, satire, and the grotesque to comment on subjects, as seen in the satire of the Englishman Hogarth, the black despair of the Spaniard Goya, and the social satire of contemporary American artists.
