The Works Progress Administration (WPA) was one of Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs that launched in 1935, during the Great Depression and Dust Bowl to bring much needed work-relief programs to over 8.5 million people in the United States. WPA employees were integral in the building of bridges, roads, buildings for public use, public parks and airports. The average salary for WPA workers was $41.57 a month. In 1936, the WPA began subsidizing resources for the arts and through the Federal Art Project (FAP) it employed 3,500 artists, many of whom became major American painters.The Oklahoma City Museum of Art will have a special exhibit entitled, "The Complete WPA Collection: 75th Anniversary" featuring rural American landscapes and the depictions of the WPA divisions of labor, infrastructure and industrial development. The museum is proud to showcase two prominent artist with Oklahoma ties in the collection of works; Acee Blue Eagle (Creek/Pawnee painter and muralist) and Elmer Capshaw (printmaker).
