Riassunto: Remembering the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) by discovering the art and artists who depicted it. The CCC was the first and most successful of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's Great Depression work programs. What they accomplished is now recognized as the greatest conservation movement in United States history. It operated from 1933 to 1942. The CCC was a labor force comprised of single young men, Native Americans, World War veterans and another unique group that, until now, has rarely been mentioned . . . Artists.
President Roosevelt gave his personal approval to the making of an pictorial record of the life and work of the CCC by sending artists into the camps.
"CCC ART - Artists of the Civilian Conservation Corps - Marshall Davis" has been deeply researched and explains the genesis of a quiet part of American art history, the CCC art project. It was a small program administered by dedicated and intelligent New Dealers in the Treasury Department and other agencies.
A remarkable story emerges of one untried artist, Marshall Davis, unemployed and struggling during the cruelest years of the Great Depression. His talents are recognized and for over eight years, first as a CCC enrollee, than as an embedded artist on assignment he observes, illustrates and reports on the most popular New Deal program. His numerous illustrations provide an entertaining and insightful pictorial record of the real CCC story.
