Call to artists for WPA style posters on the theme of See America
President Roosevelt’s Works Progress Administration (WPA) created the first See America poster series, featuring locations that might increase tourism and stimulate the economy after the Great Depression.
Centenary’s Design Communication students will select the WPA's See America posters to be displayed in the Meadow galleries Feb 28 - May 2. Additionally, there is a call to artists for "See America" posters.
"Students may submit, as well as artists of all ages and backgrounds," says Lisa Nicoletti. The deadline for inclusion in the exhibit is Dec. 20.
"Every design submitted will appear digitally in the Meadows' exhibit and on the Creative Action Network's website," says Nicoletti. "Some will additionally be selected for printing and prominent display at the Meadows. The Creative Action Network also provides a royalty to artists whose designs are popular and get ordered by others. A percentage of those proceeds also goes to support the conservation of our national parks."
