A key Regionalist at the time the New Deal was implemented, Curry participated as a muralist for the The Treasury Section of Fine Arts, a merit based program rather than a relief program. He was commissioned to create the murals for the Kennedy Department of Justice Building in Washington, DC in 1937, and the Norwalk City Hall, in Norwalk, Connecticut in 1936.
