New Deal Salon, Scholar Harvey Smith
May 29, 2014
May 29, 2014, Thursday, 6 - 7 p.m.
At the height of the Great Depression, President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal programs put millions of Americans back to work creating new infrastructure, including schools, parks, public buildings, and artworks. In every town in America these works are still in use, but their origins are largely forgotten. The Living New Deal is a collaborative project to document, map and make public this legacy. Come hear New Deal expert Harvey Smith explore the legacy of the New Deal in Long Beach and Southern California. Harvey will demonstrate how to use the Living New Deal website, map and archive as a resource, as well as share details on how you can contribute to this monumental effort.
