¬†NY30 – New York in the 1930’s
The 1930s was an era punctuated by the great depression, but monumental in its social, architectural and artistic achievements. In New York City, the Empire State Building,
the Chrysler Building and Rockefeller Center were all completed in the early 30s while
the Harlem Renaissance gave voice to the art, poetry, prose and music of African Americans.
Duke Ellington, Gershwin and Rogers and Hart created the soundtrack for the era, and the
WPA employed more than 5,000 artists to enriched a desolute landscape. George Rothacker‚Äôs exhibition is a ‚Äústory in pictures‚Äù of the people and events of this monumental era. Viewable online are videos, which accompany the paintings and more completely describe the events, struggles and accomplishments of the times.¬† For more information, visit www.NewYork1930s.com.
