Silver Lining: New Deal Public Art in Illinois

« All Events

In 1976, Barbara Bernstein produced a 24-minute film about large-scale public artworks created in Illinois under the sponsorship of the New Deal relief projects. Her film, produced for the U.S. Bicentennial, brought attention to the many beautiful murals painted in Illinois as part of this government employment effort during the 1930s. Now as Illinois celebrates its own Bicentennial, Landmarks Illinois presents a rare screening of this film. Barbara Bernstein will discuss the making of the film and conservator Heather Becker will discuss the history of some of the notable Chicago murals and their current condition.
