Artists at Work 1935-1942: New Hampshire Remembered
The exhibition, on display at the NH State Library from March 19 - June 4, 2003, was the second exhibit in the Department of Cultural Resources “Hidden Treasures” series. It drew from the New Hampshire Artist Archives to give historical context to paintings and prints produced for the New Hampshire Federal Art Project (NHFAP) between 1935 and 1942. NHFAP was part of the Works Progress Administration (WPA) that was established by President Franklin D. Roosevelt to relieve the massive unemployment that followed the 1929 stock market crash.
Two of the artists who worked for the New Hampshire Federal Art Project are featured in this exhibit: Nathaniel C. Burwash and Herbert Ogden Waters.
