I had originally planned to do my decorating spin as a how-to for printing your photos out on canvas photo paper and then stapling them to a canvas frame but that required me to actually go to the art supply store,
buy the frame then
print a picture then
do the project then
take photos of the process
then write a blog post
then collapse in a heap.
Instead I'll tell you about the decorating that we will be doing in our new offices. Did I tell you we got new offices? No? Well, we did. They are in the basement. Not ideal for my mental frame of mind but great for our digitization lab. Anyway...
This has been a long drawn out complicated sometimes frustrating process but it looks like we are over the hump and heading towards the fun part. Decorating.
Here is our plan.
We are each going to pick our favorite WPA posters.
Print them on our plotter printer.
Frame them in poster frames.
Then hang them on our now blank beige walls. Won't that be fun?
I love WPA posters. The colors are terrific. The styles are that cool art deco thing. And some of them are just downright hilarious.
Want to learn more and see more WPA posters? Look up the American Memory website put out by the talented people at the Library of Congress.
Have you seen these before? Do you work in a building that has WPA art in it? I did in Arizona. Beautiful Stuff!
