During the economic hard times of the 1930s, U.S. government art projects under the WPA and other agencies created a wealth of public art and supported art communities across the country. In the Northwest hundreds of artists were employed and thousands of artworks created but their story is almost unknown. New Deal Art in the Northwest: The WPA and Beyond and its accompanying show offer an extensive overview of the bounty of work created in the Northwest and bring forgotten treasures back to view. This exhibition catalogue features fourteen essays from a variety of contributors, appendices details artists and commissions, and extensive archival notes.
