CCC Art - Artist of the Civilian Conservation Corps - Marshall Davis

Telling the stories of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) art program and other New Deal programs.
The CCC, operating from 1933 to 1942, was the first and most successful of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's (FDR) 1930's New Deal work programs. Between 1934 - 1937 President Roosevelt personally approved sending artists into CCC camps to make a pictorial record. What these artists depicted, during the cruelest years of the Great Depression, is now recognized as the greatest conservation movement in American history.

In 1939, as a goodwill gesture the NYC division of the WPA Federal Art Project (FAP) designed and printed a 1939 calendar.

The intent was to highlight the high quality of art being
produced by the FAP projects poster division.

Seventy eight years later, in 2017, these calendar dates
repeat. Another opportunity presents itself
to enjoy this vibrant and vintage calendar art.

Now Available through the National New Deal Preservation Association (NNDPA)
