Professor to Speak on Historic (or Priceless) Mural Restoration Project at SDSU The Julian Branch Library is pleased to present a talk and slide show by Dr. Seth Mallios, Anthropology Chairperson at San Diego State University. His subject will be the Work Projects Administration (WPA) Mural Restoration Project at SDSU. The program is scheduled for Thursday, February 25th at 4:00 PM, in the library's Community Room. Dr. Mallios's lecture is in conjunction with The Big Read, an initiative of the National Endowment for the Arts, designed to revitalize the role of literature in American popular culture. As part of the Big Read, the San Diego County Library system encouraged their patrons, both young and old to read John Steinbeck's "The Grapes of Wrath", the iconic novel of The Great Depression. Each library branch is hosting programs relating to the history of The Great Depression and its enduring legacy. Dr. Mallios's presentation will focus on a part of that legacy - the art and architecture on the SDSU campus that was commissioned and completed by the Works Projects Administration (WPA) during The Great Depression. Specifically, he will discuss Dr. Mallios in his office Dr. Seth Mallios checking out the progress on restoration of the WPA murals at San Diego State the current efforts to restore and maintain these priceless artifacts. In 2004, during replacement of ceiling tiles in campus's Hardy Tower, workers had an unexpected find. They exposed partial remains of two WPA-era murals on the walls that housed SDSU's original library. Seth Mallios seized the opportunity to work on this project to restore the murals and their historic value. The WPA is remembered for its contribution to American arts and letters. Through the Federal Art Project (FAP), unemployed artists were hired to decorate and create murals for public buildings such as schools, libraries and post offices. Over 200,000 works of art were created during the Federal Art Project. The Work Projects Administration was the largest government agency established to fight unemployment during the Great Depression. Established in 1935 as part of President Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, the agency was responsible for refurbishing America's road infrastructure, erecting buildings and bridges, improving airports, developing the arts and giving millions of its employees an honest wage and a job in the broken American economy. It was estimated that one-fifth of Americans worked for the WPA. San Diego State University benefited greatly from WPA projects. These included the construction of Aztec Bowl, the Greek Amphitheater, various classrooms, lecture halls and walkways along with a few mural paintings. Renowned artist Donald Hard produced a 225-pound black diorite carving of the SDSU Aztec Mascot that sits in the center of the campus today. The more intact mural is Genevieve Burgeson Bredo's 1936 NRA Packages. George Sorenson's 1936 mural of San Diego Industry .depicts sequential stages in the local fishing industry. Dr. Mallios has previously given a talk at the library about the archeological dig he coordinates at the Nate Harrison homestead at the base of Palomar Mountain. For more information, please contact the Julian Branch Library at 760-765-0370. A prize will be given to the person(s) who know where WPA murals in Julian are Ioc ' ted.
