In 1937, a group of Chicago area artists created a portfolio of woodcuts as a fundraising project for Biro-Bidjan, the Jewish autonomous region in the USSR. These 14 artists were also active in the WPA. The woodcuts variously reflect the past and the present, oppression and optimism.
This will be a PowerPoint presentation.
