A Film on the New Deal Art ProjectsStreaming Video - 2014
When President Franklin D. Roosevelt took office in 1933 during the Great Depression, nearly 10,000 artists were out of work. This program chronicles the New Deal effort to spread "art to the millions" through the country's first comprehensive art education program. The Artists Union and related political activities are explored, as are the destruction and loss of works of art produced under the New Deal Programs. Interviews with Ilya Bolotowsky, James Brooks, Joseph Delaney, Harry Gottlieb, Chaim Gross, Lee Krasner, Edward Laning, Jacob Lawrence, Alice Neel, and Joseph Solman are included, along with archival film, photographs, sound recordings, and original color photography of the works of art.
