Over 75 years after the government first commissioned posters to showcase the country's most stunning natural features under the banner: "See America," The Creative Action Network (CAN) set out to do it again by launching a new version of
See America, a crowd sourced art campaign, enlisting artists from all 50 states to create a collection of artwork celebrating our national parks and other treasured sites.
With the centennial anniversary of the National Park Service approaching in 2016 and the continued threat of budget cuts today, Creative Action Network put out a call to its community of artists and designers around the world to create a new collection of See America posters for a new generation. The project highlights natural, cultural and historic sites across the country depicting our shared history and encouraging individuals to reconnect with these places. CAN have partnered with the National Parks Conservation Association (NPCA), who stepped up to sponsor and support See America.
The images before you represent local forest preserves through out the Midwest. The See America Project focuses mainly on the granger of the National Parks across the country but that doesn’t mean local forest preserves shouldn’t get the same kind of help and recognition.
10% of the proceeds will go directly to National Parks Conservation Association (click here to purchase).
