What do public murals of the 1930s have in common with cave paintings dating back 40,000 years? One thing—they tell a story of their time.
Inspired by the Mexican Muralist movement, American artists under FDR’s work relief programs created a living legacy with images that captured one of the most challenging times in our history. In this talk we will sample some of the most famous works, from luscious Art Deco style to gritty social realism. And once again, we will be reminded of the power of art to inspire souls and lift spirits.
Lori Windsor Mohr will be the Docent Speaker for this event sponsored by the Community Speakers Program of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Docent Council.
