New Deal Art in Alabama : The Murals, Sculptures and Other Works, and Their Creators (E-Book)

By Emerson, Jimmy S.

This is a downloadable e-book.

As the United States struggled to recover from the Great Depression, 24 towns in Alabama would directly benefit from some of the $83 million allocated by the Federal Government for public art works under the New Deal. In the words of Harold Lloyd Hopkins, administrator of the Federal Emergency Relief Act, "e;artists had to eat, too,"e; and these funds aided people who needed employment during this difficult period in American history. This book examines some of the New Deal art-murals, reliefs, sculptures, frescoes and paintings-of Alabama and offers biographical sketches of the artists who created them. An appendix describes federal art programs and projects of the period (1933-1943).
