     The FAP had a sad ending but the art was never forgotten. On June 30, 1943, the Federal Art Project came to an end. With World War II beginning the economy was in need of recovery and needed to focus more on the war, ending the era of the FAP. Though the project ended many still stuck with the art they had fallen in love with.

 

    The Federal Art Project was originally official on August 29, 1935. The founders of this project were, Franklin D Roosevelt and George Biddle but Holger Cahill, who is a curator and fine and folk art expert, was appointed to the direct the program. The FAP is used to fund the different types of arts around the United States. This project also brought all the types of Arts into the people's everyday life and gave the people a chance at trying out Art.
