Learn about rediscovery of the WPA/Federal Art Project poster series and the continued tradition today. Artists Doug Leen and Brian Maebius will discuss the history of the program and how, using one surviving poster and photographs found through 20 years of research, they painstakingly reconstructed the original set. Today over 30 national parks are represented through their contemporary designs.
