WPA

During the Great Depression the Works Progress Administration (WPA) used the economic downturn to employ artists to create posters with a message promoting the social programs created under FDR’s administration. As an homage to this populist poster art created between 1933 and 1943, Readymade invited 5 illustrators to reimagine the posters for today. You can find all the posters right here, and the original WPA designs here.
