Walls that Talk: Murals of the 1930’s

October 24, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm EDT

Museum of Ventura County
100 E Main St
Ventura, CA 93001 United States


What do public murals of the 1930s have in common with 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. This talk will sample some of the most famous works, from luscious Art Deco style to gritty social realism.
