When the Depression-era WPA disappeared, so did the purpose of most of the artists the agency had assigned to depict their little slices of America. Sixty years later, however, painter Jack Lewis retains his WPA-assigned post in Bridgeville, Del., where he is still the town’s “bohemian-in-residence.” Director Dave Petersen will discuss his cinematic rendering of Lewis, If You Lived Here, You Would Be Home Now, at this screening. At 8 p.m. at the Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden’s Ring Auditorium, 8th & Independence Ave. SW. FREE. (202) 357-2700. CP
