Forgotten Stories: Northwest Public Art in the 1930s

This event is in the past
Every Tuesday–Saturday, through March 27, 12–5 pm
Hallie Ford Museum of Art Central Area (Portland)
This is an in-person event
"During the economic hard times of the 1930s, U.S. government art projects under the WPA (Works Progress Administration) and other agencies created a wealth of public art and supported art communities across the country. These projects had an enormous impact on American art and artists, but much of that history, particularly in the Northwest, where hundreds of artists were employed and thousands of artworks were created, has been unexplored. Organized by the Tacoma Art Museum, Forgotten Stories: Northwest Public Art of the 1930s offers an extensive overview of the bounty of work created in our region and brings forgotten treasures back to view."
