To individuals who lived through that time, Depression Bread Line is a painful reminder of that impoverished period. To younger individuals, the sculpture manifests a poignant and unforgettable history. It serves as a cautionary tale of the personal consequences of social hardship and economic ruin and conveys that theme through a street scene that is both heartbreakingly private and unsentimentally public. We are there again, but this time all levels of government do nothing.
We must all work together and overcome what our government has allowed corporate interests to bring down upon us.
