New Deal D.C.
In 2007 the California Living New Deal Project was launched at the University of California, Berkeley, under the direction of Professor Richard Walker. By 2010, what had begun as a local effort to showcase buildings, artwork and public parks created during the Franklin D. Roosevelt administration had evolved into a national one. A Living New Deal web site made its debut, featuring public works across the United States. Earlier this year the Living New Deal published a map of Washington, D.C. that locates over 500 New Deal public works sites around city. High profile sites on the National Mall such as the Thomas Jefferson Memorial and the National Gallery of Art as well as popular public parks like Theodore Roosevelt Island, Langston Golf Course, and the National Arboretum are examples of how New Deal initiatives between 1933 and 1942 transformed the nation’s capital. Join Prof. Richard Walker to hear about how he brought the D.C. map to life and discover the New Deal’s legacy in D.C.
