WPA art redux

ReadyMade Magazine has a neat article online about the New Deal and how the art from that era is relevant to our current financial crisis. 5 artists re-envisioned some of the slogans to create new posters. All of them are downloadable for free. Check it out here. I particularly liked this one by Christopher Silas Neal.

Neat! I saw a presentation about sustainable food a few years ago that included some of the WPA posters. Funny how we go in circles/cycles.
