        The Washington Square Outdoor Art Exhibition began in 1931 when Jackson Pollack tried to sell some of his painting on the street to help him raise money to pay rent. He was soon joined by Willem deKooning. The following year, it was formalized and has been held ever since. For the first few years, the show was promoted via small posters designed by some of the most prominent American cartoonists.
