In the 1930s with the onset of the Great Depression, Lozowick turned toward depicting the social reality of New York City and its residents who were affected by economic despair. He also worked for public programs that supported artists, such as the New York Graphic Arts Division of the WPA and the Treasury Relief Art Project creating numerous prints and most notably in 1936, a mural for the New York City General Post Office.
