National Parks Posters

Done during the Great Depression as part of the Works Progress Administration these images beautifully capture the sights to be held in the US. These were part of Federal Project No. 1, specifically the Federal Arts Project which served to employ out-of-work artists to create works of art for public consumption. Examples include posters, murals, and sculptures as well as teaching and training in the arts. 

Other programs seperate from the Federal Arts Project were aimed at music, writing, and theater.

The list of artists employed the Federal Arts Project is expansive and unfortunately I’m not able to provide the name of the artist who did these. If you know who did these please tell so proper credit can be given.

Also I think some of these are recent images inspired by the old so if that can be clarified as well I’d appreciate it.
