In the 1930s the U.S. government commissioned a series of posters to celebrate the country’s gorgeous public landscapes. The project, “See America,” resulted in beautiful illustrations of Montana’s mountains or the geysers of Yellowstone, all part of a post-Great Depression era initiative known as the Federal Arts Project that gave work to struggling American artists.
Seventy five years later, this unique art campaign is receiving a 21st century update courtesy of the Creative Action Network. The independent community of artists has launched a crowdsourced art campaign dedicated to reviving the spirit of “See America.” The group enlisted the help of illustrators from all 50 states to craft a collection of new posters honoring the splendor of America’s national parks.
