How the New Deal Remade Washington, DC
Thursday, July 22, 2021, 2:00 PM until 3:00 PM
Public Event of Interest
"The Living New Deal" documents the vast number of New Deal public works projects constructed around the country in the 1930s, and includes a map and guide to the amazing wealth of New Deal public works and artworks in DC. The New Deal effectively transformed the city, though few remember that nearly a century later. What was achieved then provides a model and inspiration for what could be accomplished today with sufficient funding, civic spirit, and popular mobilization. Join Richard Walker as he takes us on a virtual tour of some of DC's best New Deal art, architecture, and parks. Hosted by Northwest Neighbors Village.
