Long Island Tercentenary Celebration / Suffolk County. Color screenprint poster, 559x355 mm, 22x14 inches. Federal Art Project, WPA, Nassau Country. 1936.
A rare and unrecorded WPA poster promoting the two month long celebration of Long Island's 300th anniversary. One of several posters promoting the event, this one shows a split scene of images from the previous two centuries; the first, early settlers arriving on Long Island, and then cozy colonialists, fireside, with an infant and spinning wheel.
