Images of the Month Gallery
June 1999

The Louisiana Division's WPA Photograph Collection includes approximately 7000 4" x 5" negatives recording the work of various WPA projects in New Orleans. Among the projects represented: art, archives, drainage, education, the lakefront, the U.S. Naval Base, nursing, City and Audubon Parks, paving, and public buildings.

We feature photographs from the Art Project this month. Included are scenes of artists at work, artists showing off their work, and dignitaries and other visitors view WPA art works. The Louisiana Division has a small collection of WPA art work. Please consult with an archivist if you're interested in viewing those items.
