Labor & New Deal Art at the Cleveland Public LibraryJanuary 15th, 2013 Posted in Antiques and Vintage, Art, Downtown, Galleries/Museums/Exhibits
Have you been inside the main branch of the Cleveland Public Library yet? Hands down, the 3rd floor Fine Arts Department has the most extensive collections of art and design books within hundreds of miles, but it is so underused. Their archives are vast and actually quite accessible.
On your way down the hall to the Fine Arts Department, you will pass by a series of display windows that cause us to stop and peruse every time. Last year they had an arresting display of fine arts posters from the Kokoon Club‘s Bal Masques, of which I’ll be writing about shortly. Beginning on Friday, January 18, 2013, CPL’s Labor & New Deal Art exhibit will display fine art prints from the Federal Arts Programs and the New Deal Eras, highlighting the solidarity of the arts and labor during that time. It will be worth an expedition downtown!
Prepare to spend an old-fashioned afternoon at the library. For further information, go here.
