New Deal Art in North Carolina PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

New Deal Art in North Carolina free pdf As the people and economy of the United States struggled to recover following the Great Depression, 42 towns in North Carolina would benefit directly from the more than $83 million that the federal government would allocate for public art as part of the New Deal program. Art projects funded by the New Deal extended across the state - from the mountains to the sea - and resulted in some of the state's most memorable public art pieces, including murals, sculptures, reliefs, paintings, oils, and frescoes, most of which were installed in post offices and courthouses.This volume provides the only one-volume record of all of the North Carolina towns and structures which received federal artwork under the program, as well as in-depth accounts of the works themselves and the artists who created them. The book includes photographs of all of the buildings that originally received the art, the works themselves, and almost all of the 41 artists, along with an appendix providing a detailed description of the federal aid programs and their purposes, detailed footnotes, and an extensive bibliography.
