WPA Yellowstone National Park Print on Fabric Canvas
Created in the mid-1930s in response to the Great Depression, the Works Progress Administration's Federal Arts Project tasked struggling artists with promoting the landscapes and wildlife of America’s parks.
Artist Chester Don Powell was born 1896 in Westmoreland, Kansas and was hired by the WPA first as a road flagman in the Berkeley Hills, then as an artist with the National Park Service in Emoryville, CA. In addition to the WPA Ranger Naturalist poster series he designed in the mid 1930’s assisted by one of his students Dale Miller, C. Don Powell worked as a model builder creating ship and bridge models for large construction projects.
I have altered the colours of this poster to create a cohesive collection of three posters that can be displayed together. I can print the original version on request.
+ Printed on fabric canvas. I print in-house on a commercial printer using archival quality pigment inks.
+The last photo shows the 17" x 24" print framed in a Walnut Wood Poster Hanger which I also make but are not included with this print. This listing is for the print only for you to frame anyway you choose or as a secondary print to use with a hanger.
You can find the print and hanger together here:
You can also find the hangers sold separately here:
+ I can print in any size - please contact me if you would like a size other then listed.
+ shipped in 100% plastic free packaging - cardboard box, tissue paper, kraft paper and kraft paper tape with cornstarch adhesive.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do you make your poster hangers with brass hardware instead of magnets?
Gluing metal to wood is notoriously difficult and requires some heavy duty toxic glue to get them to stay firmly in place. Even then the magnets are not likely to stay glued as wood is a natural material that expands and contracts with the heat and moisture. Eventually they will fall out and then all you are left with are some sticks! Additionally, magnets can lose their strength over time. Brass hardware will never fail.
I do not offer wholesale as I find that business model works best for mass produced goods and my products are not mass produced! I am a one person shop so I prefer to offer my best price all the time to everyone.
