(Exhibition) Pressing Issues: Printmaking as Social Justice in 1930s United States

Riva Helfond, Custom Made, 1938, Lithograph, Museum Purchase through the Richard M. and Rosann Gelvin Noel Krannert Art Museum Fund, 2020-3-1.

In the midst of the Great Depression, visual artists in the United States were put to work through the relief efforts of the New Deal not only to provide a living wage but to bolster the spirits of the general public.

Many used the opportunity to portray various scenes of everyday life in the United States through images of modern and rural landscapes, leisure activities, and industrial growth, while others directed their viewers’ attention to economic toil and key social issues. Pressing Issues: Printmaking as Social Justice in the 1930s United States brings together work by artists in the United States during the 1930s who, through their art, produced radical critical commentaries on the social injustices plaguing the country in their time.
