Carl Peters Mural Project

Air Date
Friday, October 16, 2015 - 8:30pm

In the late 1930's and early 1940's the Federal government funded the Works Progress Administration or WPA. While the WPA mostly funded public construction projects, one of its initiatives was to fund the making of art. Carl Peters was a WPA artist who worked here in Rochester. The Memorial Art Gallery helped administer the art program here in Rochester. The Gallery funded muralist Carl Peters for a series of artworks, some of which are still on display in local school buildings. Recently, the Memorial Art Gallery teamed up with some students at Wilson Magnet High School to study these murals and to carry on the tradition. Lets take a look. Aired 10/16/15.
