WPA Poster ~ National Parks

This beautiful poster of big horn sheep was created by artist J. Hirt between 1936-1939, as part of the New York City Art Project for the Great Depression era Works Progress Administration. The WPA was President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's largest program. The posters were part of an advertising campaign by the National Park Service, under the auspices of the Department of the Interior.
