Summer 2015

When you hit the trail this summer, keep an eye out for New Deal parks, gardens, civic buildings, art, and public works. Send us photos and stories about the New Deal sites you come across in your travels. There’s a lot out there, as you’ll find in this newsletter—murals in out-of-the-way post offices, a restored PWA courthouse in Nashville, an exhibition of Arthur Rothstein’s photographs in Key West, and more! The Living New Deal, in partnership with our friends at the California Historical Society, recently celebrated the 80th birthday of the WPA. We hope to see you at our upcoming events. As always, we are grateful for your interest and support. Happy summer!
