Art Deco 101: Murals of the New Deal Era

March 30, 2021

Join ADSNY as we continue our Art Deco 101 series of online illustrated talks that give an in-depth look at Art Deco architecture and design.

In this online presentation, educator and Art Deco expert, Kathleen Murphy Skolnik, will explore the expressive murals of the New Deal Era that are an important aspect of the United States' Art Deco heritage.

In this web-based event we will see how, soon after the inauguration of Franklin Delano Roosevelt as president in 1933, Congress began enacting legislation to establish a series of federally funded programs intended to put unemployed Americans, including artists, back to work.

The murals and other art created under these government employment programs are often referred to as “WPA art,” a reference to the Works Progress Administration. In this beautifully illustrated presentation, Skolnik will dive into how the Federal Art Project of the WPA was only one of several valuable work relief programs for artists during the New Deal era. Together, we will examine these significant programs, discuss the differences between them, and provide examples of beautiful murals created for schools, post offices, airports, and other public and government buildings under each of them.

Even though this event is online, it will include a live PowerPoint—with wonderful images that you will be able to see directly on your computer screen, tablet, or mobile device––as well as a Q&A session with participants. 

Can't join us at the time of the live event? No problem! Those who register will receive a recording of the entire program a few days after the live presentation. When you sign up for the program you have the opportunity to watch, or rewatch, the recording at a time more convenient for your schedule.
