Time 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Location Details
California Historical Society, 678 Mission St. San Francisco near 3rd Street, Montgomery St BART station.
Event Type Panel Discussion
Organizer/Author
The Legacy of the New Deal Speakers: Lincoln Cushing, Tim Drescher and Mark Johnson. Moderator: Gray Brechin

Funding public artwork benefits more than the artists as viewers witness their space transformed as the art enhances the urban landscape.

The arts were greatly supported during the New Deal era and many WPA projects are located in the San Francisco Bay Area. With the recent election of a new president, will money be used to fund art and culture? Panelists speak to the similarities between the present era and the New Deal as they relate to public arts and government funding during the New Deal era.
