POSTPONED - Museum Moment: WPA Park Posters – An Artistic Legacy

Stewart Lee Udall Department of the Interior Building, Interior Museum gallery, 1st floor

This event has been postponed. We look forward to rescheduling it for a later date and will update our online events calendar and social media accordingly.

Join the Interior Museum’s registrar Jason Jurgena for a 20-minute “Museum Moment” during your lunch break and travel vicariously to 13 national parks. From our collection he’ll be sharing contemporary prints inspired by the iconic WPA national park posters of the late 1930s. Hear their fascinating backstory and learn why these designs resonate with park and vintage graphics enthusiasts alike. As a special bonus, you’ll see two rare originals recently donated to the museum.

Museum Moments are a series of brief, 20-minute informal presentations in which you can count on hearing, visiting, learning, or seeing something fascinating related to the Department of the Interior's history. It might be a special artifact, a tie-in with a historical event, a mini-tour, a new addition to the museum's collection, or even a behind-the-scenes peek at a current museum project.
