Artist Statement

"Inspired by WPA artwork, I designed a poster based on the importance of civil service in America. A civil servant is a person in the public sector employed for a government department or agency. Some examples of civil services in the United States of America include foreign affairs, personnel management, general accounting and administration, budget administration, legal counsel, passport visa services, public affairs, postal service, contract procurement and information technology management. Working for the police and highway patrol are also examples of civil service positions. According to Politico Magazine, an estimated two million civil servants help sustain American democracy. Without civil service employees, our country would not function as seamlessly as it does every day." -Hayley Gilmore
