The WPA and the National Parks

I’m sure anyone who has been to any of the National Parks has seen the reissues of the Works Progress Administration‘s Federal Art Project’s art promoting the the parks. Positive propaganda. The art is beautiful and the message on point. Visit America’s treasures. Use the parks. Support those who protect our real heritage.
I picked up a bunch of the postcards on a recent trip to mail around to friends from the road. Upon returning home I looked into getting more.
I frequently live in my truck or in a tiny one room apartment. So, I am not able to buy all of the works in poster form and plaster my walls with bold representations of some of the most beautiful spots in the country. I was able to buy them all in postcard form and plaster the hell out of a very small wall! I found a decent deal from the infamous Ranger Doug.
Also check out the Library of Congress site if you get a chance. Some great stuff to spend hours browsing through. I, personally, have barely scratched the surface.
