Gershoy sculptures, Museum of American Art - Washington DC
The Smithsonian American Art Museum contains hundreds of New Deal artworks. Some are on permanent display, many are not. Of those, some are brought out for specific exhibitions from time to time.
One permanent display on New Deal art features Eugenie Gershoy’s sculptures, “Goddess of Fertility” and New Deal artists at work. There is a nice plaque acknowledging the Public Works of Art Project and the Federal Arts Project and the thousands of artworks produced under those New Deal arts programs.
