From the Weimar Republic to revolutionary Russia, the WPA to the IWW, works of art have been conscripted by both ends of the political spectrum to influence the citizenry on timely issues. While this approach to public education thrived in the U.S. during the first half of the 20th century, and had brief revivals in the 1960s and 1980s, it has sadly languished. The Public Works Project aims to raise a progressive voice above the media chorus and inject a healthy dose of art and political consciousness into the landscape of the American city.

The Project has produced posters for the Lower East Side Tenants Union, The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR), the Mexican American Workers Association, Jobs with Justice (JwJ), and the American Friends Service Committee.
