    Sculptural relief. The Works Progress Administration/Federal Art Project made a great effort to unite the distinct, but related, arts of sculpture and architecture. Sculpture created for the Project was designed to harmonize with architectural plans and to stimulate a larger demand for sculpture in public buildings. Many friezes, plaques, and figures were installed in schools, colleges, libraries, government housing units, and other public buildings. Much of the sculpture was designed (as in this example) to fit specific locations. For more information on the WPA/FAP see image: Holger Cahill.
