Description

Modernization efforts conducted on Theodore Roosevelt High School in 2013 uncovered two 1934 frescoes by Nelson Rosenberg and students at the school, entitled “Adolescent America” and “American Panorama.”  Rosenberg was funded under the Public Works of Art Project, which gave commissions to unemployed artists in the Great Depression.

The frescoes were restored and are apparently now on display in the cafeteria.

The school itself was built 1930-1932, before the New Deal began.
