Nebraska’s New Deal Art

For those of you who were unable to make it to the Nebraska History Museum last year for the exhibit entitled, “For the People: Nebraska’s New Deal Art,” we have some good news! These works of art are now available on our website as a virtual exhibit.

"Going to Work" by Ernest Stevens (743p-106)

All of the artwork in the exhibit was produced in 1933-1934 for the Public Works of Art Program (PWAP), a project of the Civil Works Administration. The art remains the property of the U.S. Government, but the Nebraska State Historical Society maintains the collection on long-term loan for the benefit of all Nebraskans.
