Description

The Denali National Park & Preserve Artist Proof is an original work created, numbered, signed and dated by the artist. The poster is designed in the style of the Works Progress Administration (WPA), when — in the 1930s and 1940s — the Federal Government 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. Denali National Park & Preserve is located in Alaska.

About Denali National Park & Preserve

Denali is six million acres of wild land, bisected by one ribbon of road. Travelers along it see the relatively low-elevation taiga forest give way to high alpine tundra and snowy mountains, culminating in North America’s tallest peak, 20,310′ – Denali. Wild animals large and small roam unfenced lands, living as they have for ages. Solitude, tranquility and wilderness await.

Denali National Park & Preserve has been set aside so people can connect to America’s past — a place that protects present wildlife and amazing landscapes today and for future generations. And, it’s a place that provides an opportunity to experience inspiration, reflection, awe, and wonder. Denali, located in Alaska, is also home to North America’s tallest peak at 20,310 feet!

Photographer and graphic artist, Robert B. Decker, studied photography with Ansel Adams in the summer of 1979 in Yosemite National Park when he was just 19…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 61 major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
