The North Cascades National Park Artist Proof is an original work created, numbered, signed and dated by the artist. The North Cascades Poster is created 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. North Cascades National Park is located in Washington State.

About North Cascades National Park
The Cascade Range is often called the American Alps, and at North Cascades National Park you’ll see glacier-clad peaks rising almost vertically from thickly forested valleys. Explore these jagged peaks crowned by more than 300 glaciers. Listen to cascading waterfalls. Discover communities of life adapted to moisture in the west and recurring fire in the east. And witness a landscape sensitive to the Earth’s changing climate. This area is a treasure trove of ecological diversity and a rugged wilderness playground for sightseers, hikers, climbers, and boaters.
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.
