Rare WPA Posters on Exhibit

Did you know the U.S. government hired thousands of artists in the 1930s & 40s to help the nation recover from the Great Depression? Hundreds of Works Progress Administration (WPA) poster artists created millions of pieces that called attention to public programs, shared values and activities that celebrated everyday American culture. 80 years later, their strong messages and striking beauty still remind us of the power and potential of our democracy.  Join Peters Valley in celebrating this timeless legacy in Spring 2017.

This exhibit will be on display at the Peters Valley Gallery from April 8 – May 21, 2017. The Gallery is open Thursday – Sunday 10:00am – 5:00pm.
