Late last week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released the new ‘posters’ for her Green New Deal and people noticed something sort of peculiar about the artwork and voiced their concerns.

Take a gander for yourself.

Sooo … what’s the deal?


The posters were designed by the New York firm Tandem, which was also behind the congresswoman’s election campaign. Scott Starrett, a co-founder of Tandem, created them with artist Gavin Snider. Starrett said that more posters, of local parks in cities other than New York, will follow, but the timing of their release is uncertain.

If the posters seem at first glance to have a retro vibe, you’re not wrong, as the congresswoman confirmed in a follow-up tweet. The chunky all-caps type, the emphasis on places of natural beauty, and even the color palettes are intended to evoke posters produced nearly a century ago by a singular federal program in American history: the Federal Art Project, an office of the New Deal-era Works Progress Administration.


Big government art.

Socialism. Communism.

And AOC doesn’t get why the art might make people uncomfortable?


Nothing to see here folks.

Oh, that too.

HA! Wouldn’t count on that.
