Produced for an agency exhibit at the 1936 Kansas State Fair, as part of the Art of the New Deal program, Alden Krider's oil painting celebrates the work of the National Youth Administration (NYA), a New Deal agency that provided education and jobs to young people.

It stands in the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center at the Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site.

The Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center opened at the Franklin D. Roosevelt National Historic Site on November 15, 2003. Archivist of the United States John Carlin formally dedicated the new Wallace Center and Doris Kearns Goodwin, Pulitzer Prize winning author, historian, and frequent television commentator, delivered the keynote address on FDR's leadership.

The Center is a public-private project designed to serve students, teachers, and the visiting public at the Roosevelt Presidential Library and the sites administered by the National Park Service in Hyde Park - the Roosevelt Home, Eleanor Roosevelt's cottage (Val-Kill), FDR's Retirement Retreat, Top Cottage, and Vanderbilt Mansion.

Named in honor of the man who served as Secretary of Agriculture (1933-1940) and Vice-President during Franklin Roosevelt's third term, the Henry A. Wallace Center offers visitors an array of new and expanded services designed to enhance their experiences in Hyde Park. For the more than 125,000 visitors to the Roosevelt Library and National Historic Site, the Center now provides for the first time a comprehensive introduction to the historic complex of Roosevelt properties.

The Wallace Center is operated by the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum, in an innovative partnership with the National Park Service. The private non-profit Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute (FERI) has been instrumental in raising private support for both the Wallace Center and Top Cottage which opened to the public in 2001. FERI will host an ambitious program of national and international scholarly conferences and public policy activities in the new Center. Federal funding for the project has been provided through both the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and the National Park Service, with each agency securing million in congressional appropriations. The Roosevelt Library and Museum is one of NARA's eleven presidential libraries. The Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute raised million for the construction.
