The Interior Museum is pleased to be hosting the “See America” traveling exhibition, presented by the Creative Action Network and the National Parks Conservation Association. Featured in this temporary show are 50 posters by 46 different artists depicting natural, cultural and historical sites across the United States. The posters are part of a growing online collection of more than 600 images submitted to the Creative Action Network by more than 185 artists worldwide.

The Creative Action Network organizes crowdsourced art campaigns around a variety of topics. Inspired by artwork created for the United States Travel Bureau by New Deal-era artists in the late 1930s, the contemporary “See America” series reimagines the theme for a 21st-century audience. The set encourages tourism and invites viewers to appreciate America’s treasures.

For this venue of “See America,” the Interior Museum has selected imagery representing sites in 37 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Washington, DC—from scenic rivers and national parks to historic trails and state forests. Visitors will also see travel ephemera from the 1930s and 1940s, plus travel guides produced by the Federal Writers Project in the same time period. Guests may also watch a 35-minute film entitled, “Artists at Work.” Originally directed by Mary Lance in 1981, this film narrated by Morgan Freeman was the first to focus on the visual art programs of the New Deal and includes interviews with ten original New Deal artists.
