Here's a question for any of you who have studied New Deal art programs (PWAP, FAP, and Treasury). In theory, PWAP and FAP were intended for unemployed artists. However, I have found that members of an art school faculty were employed on a PWAP project, so I'm guessing that the rule was not uniformly applied to PWAP projects. What about FAP? Did artists on FAP projects have to be unemployed, i.e., not working as art teachers?
Thanks for any information or leads.
