The Works Progress Administration (WPA) created about two million silk-screened posters promoting their work.  These posters featured topics like education, public health, travel, workplace safety, recreation, national parks, and more. In 2017, the USPS featured 10 of these poster designs on Forever stamps.
 
President Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal and Works Progress Administration (WPA) projects helped America find its way out of the Great Depression.   They created millions of new jobs and improved communities with a wide range of public works projects.  Among these ambitious programs was Federal Project Number One.

Federal Project Number One was a $27 million program aimed at creating jobs for thousands of artists, musicians, actors and writers.  The largest of these projects was the Federal Art Project.  Out-of-work artists were paid about $23 a week to create murals, paintings, sculptures, photographs, theater set designs, and other art forms.  These artists also created over 100 community art centers to both display and teach their craft.  A number of now-famous artists were able to survive the Depression thanks to this program, including Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Mark Rothko, and Arshile Gorky.  In all, the Federal Art Project employed some 10,000 artists and yielded over 200,000 separate works of art.
