The Worth Protecting National Park Artist Proof is a Limited Edition work created, numbered, signed and dated by the artist. The poster is based off of a WPA-era poster themed around helping Park Rangers protect our parks, namely from careless fires. The new poster is created in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), when the Federal Government — in the 1930s and 1940s — commissioned hundreds of artists to create thousands of poster designs for public exhibits, community activities, theatrical productions, health, safety and educational programs, nature and travel. By the end of the WPA era, only 26 National Parks had been established and only 14 parks had posters created for them.
Photographer and graphic artist, Rob Decker, studied photography with Ansel Adams in the summer of 1979 in Yosemite National Park, an experience that solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all 59 major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
