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 is part of the national recognition of the 75th anniversary of the New Deal. Patty Satalia spoke with David Lembeck about the exhibit. Penn State's Palmer Museum of Art is a free-admission arts resource for the University and surrounding communities in central Pennsylvania. The financial crisis has led some universities to consider selling off collections or closing their art museums altogether.
