This week, Kristina Murray, Art Historian and PAFA's Teen Programs Coordinator, will investigate the significance of Depression-era government-funded art programs created by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Thousands of artists, including Stuart Davis, Dox Thrash, and Berenice Abbott, benefited from these programs.

Join us for this timely discussion as we consider the importance of funding the arts during a time of crisis.
