In August 1935, the Federal Government launched its most ambitious New Deal visual arts initiative, the Federal Art Project (FAP). Aimed at conserving “the talent and skills of artists who, through no fault of their own, found themselves on the relief rolls and without means to continue their work,” the FAP ultimately employed more than 5,000 men and women over an eight-year span (1935-1943).


The federal art project started in 1934 and lasted through 1943.  It was a new deal program to fund the visual arts in the united states under national director Holger Cahill, It was one of the five federal number one projects sponsored by the works progress administration and the largest of the new deal projects
