In my research on American life during the Great Depression, I stumbled on a number of websites containing hundreds of posters produced by artists under Works Progress Administration (WPA) sponsorship. I am posting some of the more interesting of these here. Do notice the various causes advocated and the points of view expressed. Such posters provide a window into the mindset of those who lived during this most difficult period in U. S. history. I was especially intrigued by the desire of many people to maintain some sense of culture (books, music, theatre, art), perhaps as an escape from the problems of daily life they were experiencing. Although no specific dates were provided for individual posters, the WPA operated between 1935 and 1943 when it was dismantled as World War II generated employment opportunities. Notice the concern (some would say paranoia) about divulging any information that might be construed as providing possible assistance to military adversaries. Many posters expressed similar sentiments.
