The murals located in the Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building represent a period in American history when art flourished under government sponsorship. Created during the Great Depression, the Department of the Interior's murals are the product of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal. The artists who created the murals represent some of the finest American painters of the 1930s.
