The WPA Guide to Illinois: The Federal Writers' Project Guide to 1930s Illinois

Catalog Number: 
Book, Federal Writers' Project of the Works Progress Administration for the State of Illinois
Date: 
1939, 1984
Edition: 
First Pantheon Edition
Abstract: 
"First Published in 1939, 'The WPA Guide to Illinois' captures more vividly than any other guide both Chicago's quick pulse and the richly varied character of the rest of the state. Thirties Chicago, birthplace of the skyscraper, had just played host to the dazzling Century of Progress Exposition; the Board of Trade was the city's tallest building; and State Street was said to be the most brilliantly lighted street in the world. The stunning residences of the Gold Coast along Lake Shore Drive offered the city's most concentrated display of wealth, while on the South Side hundreds of freight cars rattled into the stock yards each night with their noisy cargo of livestock."

Framing the Artists: Artists & Art in Film & Television

Catalog Number: 
Journal, Framing the Artists: Artists & Art in Film & Television
Date: 
April 2005
Issue: 
1
Abstract: 
Continuing stereotypes of art and artists in mainstream media reveal to us the real impact (or lack thereof) that artists have on the world around them. The minimal presence of living, working, visual artists in these media spheres contributes to the kinds of generalizations and misunderstandings that many people seem to have about the power and function of the visual arts. It is our contention that by continually watching, cataloging,and analyzing these portrayals, artists can also gain a better understanding of their own responsibilities to their viewers and how the stereotypes hurt their ability to effectively communicate their ideas. *
