Federal Theatre Project Designs: Posters
Federal Theatre Project posters were often designed and printed by the Federal Art Project, another of the New Deal cultural programs that gave work to artists and graphic designers. Art Project workers developed a variation of the silkscreen process, which allowed for mass-produced paper copies from the original design.
