CELEBRATING THE NATIONAL PARK SERVICE CENTENNIAL
CENTURY of DESIGN In The NATIONAL PARKS SYMPOSIUM in SANTA FE, NM
June 21, 2016 

Eugene Kingman’s seven National Park paintings for the 1931 Paris Expo were displayed in a poster presentation during this special Symposium on June 20-25, 2016 in Santa Fe.  This poster, designed by Eugene Kingman’s eldest daughter, Mixie Kingman Eddy, features paintings of  popular national parks: (Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Grand Canyon, Sequoia, Mt. Rainier, Crater Lake, and Yosemite).

Back in 1931 HORACE M. ALBRIGHT, the Director of the National Park Service, commissioned Eugene Kingman to paint large oil paintings of seven popular national parks, which were sent to Paris to be displayed during the 1931 Paris Expo. Albright wanted to attract Europeans to visit and experience first-hand America’s treasured natural wonders. The idea was to lift everyone’s spirits during the pre-“New Deal” era following the Great Depression.
