Stories: New Deal Art Exhibit

May 1, 2009

An exhibit of New-Deal era artwork is on display at the State Historical Museum in Harrisburg. State College resident David Lembeck conceived the idea and is the co-curator. The exhibit is titled A Common Canvas: Pennsylvania's New Deal Post Office Murals. It opened November 2008 and will continue to the middle of May. It is part of the national recognition of the 75th anniversary of the New Deal. The subject matter chosen for the art was usually tied to local history or industry.
