The federal government commissioned a series of public murals from the artists it employed. William Gropper's "Construction of a Dam" (1939), is characteristic of much of the art of the 1930s, with workers seen in heroic poses, laboring in unison to complete a great public project.
Trinity Church in the City of Boston, located in the Back Bay of Boston, Massachusetts, is a parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. The congregation was founded in 1733. After its former site on Summer Street burned in the Great Boston Fire of 1872, the current church complex was erected. The church & parish house were designed by Henry Hobson Richardson & construction took place from 1872 to 1877, when the complex was consecrated.
