 January 30–April 25, 2010
 The exhibition 1934: A New Deal for
 Artists provides a view of America in
 1934 as seen through the eyes of its
 painters. Simultaneously exuberant,
 colorful, serious, and diverse, the 55
 paintings—drawn from the collection
 of the Smithsonian American Art
 Museum—provide a composite portrait
 of America during the Depression.
      In 1934, President Franklin Delano
 Roosevelt’s administration created the
 Public Works of Art Project, a bold
 move demonstrating the necessity
 of support for art, artists and the
 American spirit during difficult
 economic times. The first federal
 government program to support the
 arts nationally, the Public Works of
 Art Program paid artists to embellish
 public buildings, and provided them
 with a sense of pride and mission in
 serving and inspiring their country.
 While the program lasted just seven
 months, it funded 3,750 artists who
