A century of wonders

This month, we are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the U.S. Park Service. Over the decades, the Park Service has commissioned wonderful art work to encourage folks to get out and enjoy these national treasures. Some of the most enduring art is in the form of posters created during the 1930s by the Federal Art Project, which provided work for thousands of struggling artists, designers, photographers, and printers.
