In the depths of the Great Depression, Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration put millions of Americans to work. In addition to employing laborers for infrastructure and agriculture, the government funded the production of bold graphic posters to communicate wit the public and provide artists with a much-needed source of income. We took a cue from FDR and asked artist Dan Cassaro to illustrate a series of posters in the spirit of their WPA predecessors, but updated for the modern era.
