Shadowfest

For the first time in decades. folks in North America will have the opportunity to view a total solar eclipse on Monday August 21, 2017. Astronomer and artist Tyler Nordgren has created a series of colorful posters to celebrate the celestial event.

The “2017 Great American Eclipse” posters were inspired by 20th century travel advertising and 1930s WPA poster art. Most of the individual pieces in the series were commissioned by cities, counties, states, institutions, and national parks.

You can see the entire series and purchase your own prints at Nordgren’s website.
