Federal Theatre Project Designs
As one of its efforts to employ some of the millions of Americans left jobless by the Great Depression, the Works Progress Administration's Federal Theatre Project produced a variety of stage productions. In addition to hiring actors, directors, and dancers, the Theatre Project also employed designers to draw sets and costumes for its shows. This exhibit includes four drawings from hundreds of similar items in the holdings of the National Archives.
