Illustrator and printmaker Chris Turnham will present a collection of artwork to accompany the release of his new children’s book, National Parks of the USA. These hand-pulled silkscreen prints use geometric shapes and limited color palettes to depict the parks in their most distilled forms, recalling the iconic screen-printed Works Progress Administration posters that have been synonymous with the National Park Service for decades.

In addition to being available to sign his new book, National Parks of the USA, Chris will be previewing his new illustration for the forthcoming updated Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area visitor brochure. A portion of the funds from sales will be donated to further arts in the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area.
