WPA Poster Grand Canyon National Park
Printed canvas with wood hanging frame. Solid walnut or white oak pieces are compressed together by solid brass ball thumb screws and posts to securely hold the top and bottom of the print. Easy to hang on an included single brass head nail.
+ Solid brass hardware holds prints more securely than magnets. Brass hardware has a vintage patina and is antiqued in small batches with apple cider vinegar.
+ Raw Walnut and Raw Oak do not have any kind of finish so the natural beauty of the wood can shine through. Walnut is finished with organic hemp oil and beeswax. Black Oak is oak wood ebonized with India Ink and finished with organic hemp oil and beeswax. India ink is 100% carbon pigment and completely non-toxic and has zero impact on the environment, unlike water based stains or paints. All wood is sourced from sustainably managed forests.
+ Hang with hemp twine or cork strap. Brass head nail and brass ring included. Twine colors to choose from are: natural hemp or black. Cork strap colors to choose from are: natural cork, dark brown or black. Cork is a vegan and environmentally friendly alternative to leather. Cork is soft, strong, beautiful and sustainable as harvesting cork does not damage the tree in any way. See last photo for options. Add your choice in the personalization section.
+ "Canvas Only No Frame" option is for the canvas print only without the wood hanging frame.
Prints are printed on 370gsm art canvas. I use high quality canvas that will not yellow over time as it does not contain optical brighteners and is acid-free and age resistant according to ISO 9706 (museum standard according to galleries and museum’s longevity requirements).
+ Canvas and wood hanging frame are shipped together but the canvas is not installed to avoid damage to the canvas. Installing the canvas is easy and no tools are required. Simply unscrew the thumb screws from the posts and insert the canvas edge in between the wood rails at top and bottom. Tighten the screws and your canvas is ready to hang. Print is held by the wood below the screws and posts and is not damaged at all.
+ 17" x 24" Walnut + Canvas is pictured with hemp twine.
+ shipped in 100% plastic free packaging.

ABOUT THE ART:
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.

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.
