Summary
"'Enough to live on: the arts of the WPA' celebrates the 80th anniversary of the Works Progress Administration and the Federal Art Project, and highlights artwork, music, writing, and acting, all created under the various New Deal initiatives that put creative Americans on the federal payroll and back to work as a part of our nation's recovery from the effects of the great crash of October 1929. Featuring more than 70 works of art from this period, as well as rare footage of WPA artists and others at work, this film tells the story of how Franklin Roosevelt and the New Deal used the arts to bring a message of hope and recovery to the American people, as we dug our way out of the crisis that was the Great Depression."--http://www.two17films.com
