City Lore: NY Center for Urban Folk Culture (New York, NY 10003-9345)
Steve Zeitlin (Project Director: September 2020 to present)
Lost Labor of Love: The CETA Art and Humanities Project

Planning for a traveling exhibit about the 1970s Federal Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA), that provided work for artists.

From 1974 to 1981, New York City, Wilmington, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington DC, Birmingham, and nearly 200 other localities across the nation—large and small, urban and rural—took advantage of the Federal Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA) jobs program to create unique public service employment opportunities for artists and cultural workers. City Lore, the Delaware Art Museum, and Artist Alliance Inc (AAI) are together developing an initiative to research, document, and bring to light this remarkable program with a major touring exhibition as well as publications, performances and panel discussions.
