By the People, For the People: New Deal Prints from the 1930s & 1940s

When: Jan. 11-Feb. 26 2010

It's hard to believe, in this era of corporate bailouts, that there was once a time when tax dollars went to actual individuals willing to work for the money. While providing millions of construction jobs that transformed our national infrastructure, the Depression-era Work Projects Administration also funded thousands of artists, from Walker Evans to Jackson Pollock, who helped forge a uniquely American cultural identity. CSU-Pueblo's By the People, For the People: New Deal Prints from the 1930s & 1940s has brought a selection of WPA works to the Capps Capozzolo Academic Center for the Arts (2200 Bonforte Blvd., Pueblo). The exhibit, which runs through Feb. 26, will also include an extensive list of WPA-funded sites in Pueblo. There'll also be a lecture and reception from 5 to 7 tomorrow, Jan. 15.
