HEROES OF THE GREAT OUTDOORS 24" x 36" poster- (comes with a biography zine about who the heroes are)

Originally created for Carolyn Finney's article for Outside Magazine  , this poster features 10 incredible people who are working to inspire the black and brown youth of our nation to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. As we celebrated the centennial of the national parks in 2016, many sources began to examine that participation in the parks was majority white. Carolyn Finney's article offers that perhaps we can begin to address this by honoring the black and brown elders who have been working for decades to preserve our environment and inspire young people to explore them. Each poster comes with a short biography of each person featured, so that you can learn more them.

The initial print run was 1000, and each person featured in the person received 80 posters to fund-raise for their own organizations or to use for their own purposes. The remaining posters were sold as part of a GoFundMe pre-sale campaign to pay for the initial print run, and the set of 75 posters for sale on this website are to compensate me for my time creating the art and running the campaign. I believe it is important to be transparant about where the money is going for this particular project.
