WPA: Jobs is an exhibition of prints and archival materials related to the Works Project Administration (WPA), founded on May 6, 1935, by Franklin Delano Roosevelt. The WPA was intended to put America back to work again. Federal Project Number 1 (The Federal Arts Project) was the visual arts component of this New Deal program and supported tens of thousands of artists, and by the end of the WPA/FAP project artists produced about 200,000 prints from across the country.
