collection consists of 908 boldly colored and graphically diverse original posters produced from 1936 to 1943 as part of Franklin Delano
Roosevelt's New Deal. Of the 2,000 WPA posters known to exist, the Library of Congress's collection of more than
900 is the largest. These striking silkscreen, lithograph, and woodcut posters were designed to publicize health and safety programs;
cultural programs including art exhibitions, theatrical, and musical performances; travel and tourism; educational programs; and community
activities in seventeen states and the District of Columbia. The posters were made possible by one of the first U.S. Government programs to
support the arts and were added to the Library's holdings in the 1940s.

Windows on the War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941-1945 - During World War II,
the Soviet Union's news agency, TASS, enlisted artists and writers to bolster support for the nation's war effort. Working from
Moscow, this studio produced hundreds of storefront window posters, one for nearly every day of the war. Windows on the War: Soviet
TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941-1945 is a monumental exhibition centered on these posters, which have not been seen in the
United States since the Second World War. Impressively large-between five and ten feet tall-and striking in the vibrancy and texture of the
stencil medium, these posters were sent abroad, including to the Art Institute of Chicago, to serve as international cultural
"ambassadors" and to rally allied and neutral nations to the endeavors of the Soviet Union. In Windows on the War, 250 posters
were on display July 31-October 23, 2011, with the rich historical and cultural context of US-USSR relations illuminated through
photographs and other documentary material.
