ABSTRACT
The article reports on the reclamation program in the U.S. It is stated that the U.S. government has often commissioned artists to further its agenda, but rarely on the scale seen from 1968 to 1974. This time was when the Bureau of Reclamation ran an ad in an art magazine, soliciting artists to depict the imaginative aspects of the reclamation program.
