The Hoover Dam as functional art

Hoover Dam, which I visited on a recent US tour, was constructed between 1931 and 1936, and was dedicated on September 30, 1935 by President Franklin Roosevelt. Its construction was the result of a massive effort involving thousands of workers, and cost over a hundred lives. But today it is arguably striking example of function, meets art, meets politics.
