1930, The Great Depression, people were struggling every day
and still they couldn’t see the light in the end of the tunnel. So what could cheer up these people? The answer is art on posters. The Works Progress Administration and its Federal Arts Project wanted to give the people positivism in their lives, so they
arranged artwork for public buildings that contained huge posters of wildlife and landscapes of America’s parks. It was a great project that got a lot of artists engaged, and it lasted a long time, till 1943. Now the whole selection of the posters is situated in the gallery of the Library of Congress.
