Work, People, Art

This exhibition features paintings, prints, and photography made under the Federal Art Project (FAP) from the Illinois State Museum’s permanent collection. The FAP supported out-of-work artists during the Great Depression (1929-1939) with commissions and relief programs. The Project encouraged artists to portray the hopes and hardships of American life, giving voice and inspiration to a struggling nation during one of its darkest periods.
