The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was part of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s (FDR’s) New Deal during the Great Depression and WWII. These posters were part of an effort to both support the arts and to promote various community goals such as tourism, travel, the theater, music, zoos, workplace safety, worker training and job skills, health, education, youth activities and regional promotion. Archived and published in its raw form by the LOC Work Projects Administration Poster Collection, these are all public domain images, as they were created either by the US Government or by a government employee as part of his or her official duties. No known restrictions on publication exist. While freely available from the LOC archives, the images here have been edited and cleaned up to make them more presentable for publication.
