The WPA: Save the NEA at Washburn Gallery

After 25 years at 20 West 57th Street, Washburn Gallery will relocate to 177 Tenth Avenue between 20th and 21st in the Chelsea gallery district. The first exhibition to inaugurate the gallery’s new Chelsea space will be ‘The WPA’ (subtitle “Save the NEA”) opening September 14th – October 28, 2017. The Federal Art Project, a New Deal program, of the Works Progress Administration employed more than five thousand American artists between 1935 and 1943. A significant number of these artists later achieved international renown as Abstract Expressionists in the post World War II era. This exhibition brings together works by several of these artists including Philip Guston, Stuart Davis, and Jackson Pollock who were commissioned early in their careers to create public murals.
