Enough to Live On – Movie



This is a DVD copy of the movie by Michael Maglaras on the Arts of the WPA.  We had a featured showing of this in 2015 for the focus of our fundraiser.  The pre-WPA mural in our building was painted by Douthitt Wilson of Dallas, Texas in 1932 and installed in the men’s reading room (originally the children’s reading room 1904) of the Carnegie Library Building at 125 South College Avenue, downtown Tyler.  Celebrating the history of our building in this way was very well received and many visitors came a great distance to view the mural in its original location.

Excerpt from the back: 

“In this new Film, written, narrated, and directed by Michael Maglaras, we explore the important role that the arts in America played on our national recovery and in the re-establishment of our senses of ourselves as Americans and citizens. In this fifth “essay in film” Michael Magalaras, who has been hailed as a filmmaker of outstanding equality, brings us closer in our own time to the idea that the arts in America play an integral and sustaining role in the maintenance of our democracy.”
