Art for the People: WPA-Era Paintings From the Djikstra Collection
Opens January 29!
Show runs: Jan 29 – May 7, 2023

In the years between the American stock market crash of 1929 and World War II, artists focused on American scenes and people—and often the plight of the dispossessed. In large part because of the Great Depression, artists from all regions of the United States sought to produce art that expressed fundamental human concerns and a collective interest in humanity. This exhibition focuses on representational painting created during this era, which led to and included the government-sponsored WPA (Works Progress Administration), and it offers a broad look at what constituted American art at this pivotal time.

Art for the People opens on January 29 and will be on view through May 7.
