This exhibit includes 26 contemporary artworks in the distinctive style of the 1930s and 40s WPA Federal Art Project National Park travel posters. We’re sure this exhibit will inspire you to buckle up for a retro-inspired road trip to experience and explore the beauty of Kansas parks and green spaces for yourself!

See Atchison Art Contest
In conjunction with the See Kansas Road Trip exhibit showing at the Cultural Center we are partnering with Parks and Greenspaces to add Atchison to this collection of new works in the WPA National Parks poster style.
There aren't many rules, just as long as the resulting artwork fits with the WPA style. Stop by the Cultural Center for inspiration, then head out to Atchison public parks and greenspaces and create your own interpretation. Enter as many times as you like, digital files accepted.
