DID YOU KNOW. . . The U.S. government hired thousands of artists in the 1930s & 40s to help the nation recover from the Great Depression? Hundreds of Works Progress Administration (WPA) poster artists created millions of pieces that called attention to public programs, shared values, and activities that celebrated everyday American culture. 85+ years later, their strong messages and striking beauty still remind us of the power and potential of our democracy. Join Cream Ridge Winery in celebrating this timeless legacy!
