Crystal Bridges Museum – Plaster, wood, metal, and acrylic paint by George Segal – 1991

The five figures seen here represent Americans waiting in line for public assistance during the Great Depression. With this sculpture, Segal sought to “evoke the emotional tenor of FDR’s extraordinary four terms: how it felt to live during the Great Depression and World War II.” A bronze cast of this original sculpture marks the Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, D.C.
