Just quickly passing on this gallery of posters produced by the WPA during the Great Depression. Strangely, a few of them seem to reflect some of the concerns we talk about lately on our blogs, such as reading and cleaning up the neighborhood.
You can see a bigger collection of posters here at the Library of Congress website.
Wouldn’t it be nice if we had public art projects that conveyed messages we should be taking to heart? (Or do we need to wait until the next Depression and the next WPA?)
