1pm - 4pm
During the depths of the Great Depression, the U.S. government became a vital patron of the arts, employing hundreds of artists to create millions of posters promoting positive social ideals and programs as well as a uniquely American way of life. Over 35,000 posters were made during this time.
Throughout the day, you will have the opportunity to screen-print your own Four Freedoms poster (and other WPA designs) during a hands-on workshop. At 2:30pm, you will hear from the Posters for the People's book author and founder of Social Impact Studios, Ennis Carter, about the impact of WPA and her efforts to continue its legacy. Please see below for directions and registration information.
