Artist Statement

"Perhaps Quincy Mine's Shafthouse isn't a pretty structure, it's corrugated metal and rust stands well apart from it's surroundings but it's arguably the most striking landmark on the Keweenaw skyline. In it's day it hoisted up a fortune of copper to a growing nation and lowered men down to untold man-hours of toil. Today this iconic structure stands above an organization that continues to bring up wealth in the form of education with tours and displays, while still toiling to preserve it from the ravages of time.

About See America

See America is reviving the legacy of the New Deal arts projects by building a new collection of posters celebrating our shared natural landmarks and treasured sites. Proceeds support National Parks Conservation Association, the independent, nonpartisan voice working to strengthen and protect our nation’s natural, historical, and cultural heritage.

About our Prints

Each poster is hand-printed and handled, to make sure that only the highest quality is offered and sent out. The matte paper and high quality of inks make for a vibrant image which looks great both framed, and au-naturel. Printed in Los Angeles, CA, on Epson Enhanced Matte Paper, heavyweight stock, high color gamut, using Epson UltraChrome HDR ink-jet technology. Framed posters offer the same, museum-quality printed poster, but wrapped in a protective black frame. The frame is lightweight and includes a shatter-resistant acrylite front protector, so it won't break in the mail. International orders may be subject to customs duties & taxes.
