Nathan Hale Plaque (1934)

This plaque was designed for Nathan Hale Middle School in Cleveland, OH and is still on display (as of 2011). It was funded by the Public Works of Art Project, a national New Deal program to give employment to artists in the aftermath of the Depression.  A plaster cast of it was exhibited at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Exhibition of the Public Works of Art Project in March 1934.
