Department of the Interior Museum curator Tracy Baetz introduces "POSTERity: WPA's Art Legacy & America's Public Lands." This retrospective exhibition on view through spring 2015 at the Department's headquarters building in Washington, DC, features nearly 50 silk screened prints associated with 36 national parks, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and the Interior Museum. For the first time, rare historic posters produced by WPA artists for the National Park Service in the late 1930s are united with contemporary editions created by Doug Leen and Brian Maebius in the same iconic style and print tradition as the originals.
