In the United States, the Great Depression had a great influence on artistic output, with many artists focusing on the agrarian and the humble man in the streets. It was the first time in US history that widespread collectives of artists began to address politics, and endeavoured to use their art to impact society. Artists held exhibitions on social and political themes such as poverty, lack of affordable housing, anti-lynching, anti-fascism, and workers' strikes.
