Fogel, Jared A.; Stevens, Robert L.
Social Education, v60 n5 p287-91 Sep 1996
Examines the controversy generated by art works commissioned by the Works Progress Administration (WPA). Attempting to create work for depression-era artists, the WPA often commissioned murals for government buildings. Recounts the experience of Seymour Fogel, who's positive portrayal of Native Americans ran afoul of racist sentiments in Safford, Arizona. (MJP)
