These posters will make you want to get out and See America — and Wisconsin

I will never tire of great outdoor photography and art, especially when it inspires people to actually get outside.

That’s part of the goal of See America, a crowdsourced art project launched by the Creative Action Network (CAN) that seeks to recreate the “See America” posters created as part of a Works Progress Administration project in the 1930s.


Original See America posters created by the WPA in the 1930s.

CAN called upon artists from all 50 states to create new posters highlighting national parks and other natural treasures. The National Parks Conservation Association stepped in to sponsor the project.

The collection of posters will be on display in a special exhibit at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum in Hyde Park, New York, through June 30.

See America is accepting submissions from any and all artists, and the designs are available for purchase as posters, tote bags and more on See America’s website. The artists receive 40% of the proceeds.

There are currently 12 offerings from Wisconsin, ranging from posters of the Apostle Islands to the Ice Age Trail. Here is a sampling of Wisconsin designs that will make you want to get out and explore our beautiful state.
