New Deal Art
There are at least 482 works of art in the Pueblo Grande Museum's archive. Most can be traced to the Federal Art Project, during 1940 - 1941. Prehistoric pottery designs are particularly well represented, with a series of silk screens and color drawings of sherds from the Museum's collection. Historic native cultures are well represented, with black-and-white as well as color drawings of Maricopa, Pima, Mohave, and Yuman objects; especially numerous are examples of Pima baskets. There are detailed architectural drawings, floor plans, and color renditions of native houses. There are also examples of the use of the "swastika" motif in art, throughout time and around the world.
