Like the 'Keep Calm and Carry On' posters that were used by the British Government to reassure its citizens of a bright future, these WPA style ads were used during the Great Depression. Franklin D. Roosevelt's Works Progress Administration was a movement that helped many Americans get on their feet. Along with infrastructure and agriculture employment, the government funded the WPA posters to connect with the public. This movement also helped many starving artists during that time.
