The Grand Teton National Park Poster is currently under development. The poster will be created in the style of the Works Program 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.
Mountains of the Imagination
Rising above a scene rich with extraordinary wildlife, pristine lakes, and alpine terrain, the Teton Range stands monument to the people who fought to protect it. These are mountains of the imagination. Mountains that led to the creation of Grand Teton National Park where you can explore over two hundred miles of trails, float the Snake River or enjoy the serenity of this remarkable place.
Grand Teton National Park represents the most recent poster in my WPA-style poster series, and will be included in the Rocky Mountains Collection. There are also posters for Acadia National Park, Yosemite National Park, Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve…with more on the way! I just made the Grand Circle Tour of the Colorado National Parks this summer — Rocky Mountain, Great Sand Dunes, Mesa Verde, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. I’m also working on Yellowstone, Haleakala and, well I’ll leave it as a mystery for now…but it’s one of the least visited parks!!!
So, this is NOT a reproduction of a poster made during the WPA era. This is original artwork, created from original photography…in the 21st Century!!!
