Everglades National Park is the newest poster in The National Park Poster Project series of WPA-style posters and was released today as part of The National Park Poster Project 2015 Kickstarter Campaign.
The original photograph for the poster of Everglades National Park was taken this past March by Robert B. Decker in the Thousand Islands area, not far from the Gulf Coast Visitor Center, near Everglades City, FL.
The Florida Collection, featuring all three parks — Everglades, Biscayne and Dry Tortugas National Parks — is also part of the 2015 Kickstarter Collection.
The Bryce Canyon National Park Poster is an original graphic work based on the photograph taken by Robert Decker in June of 2015 in between Bryce Point and Inspiration Point along the Rim Trail.
The poster also completes the Utah Mighty Five collection, featuring all five National Parks — Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches.
The poster was created in the style of the Works Progress Administration of the 1930s and 1940s, when the Federal Government started the Works Progress Administration (or the Works Program Administration), and commissioned hundreds of artists to create thousands of posters designs from which literally millions of prints were made. At that time, there were only 26 National Parks. And only 14 parks had posters created during the WPA.
I could really use your help! I’ve been working on two versions of the Canyonlands National Park poster…and I need your help! One the left, the famed Mesa Arch. On the right, the view from the Green River Overlook. Which do you like best?
