In honor of this event, we’ll be dropping a limited edition print (printed on French Paper Co paper) by local lettering artist and type designer Jason Carne. You’re gonna want this!

Introducing KY Parks & Crafts, a poster series curated by hellofieldtrip in partnership with KY State Parks Foundation and KY for KY, designed to help support the non-profit mission of the KY State Parks Foundation.

 

Like many parks across the country, funding from the government and through tax dollars isn’t enough. That’s where the Kentucky State Parks Foundation comes in. The great people at this foundation are not bureaucrats, or politicians nor do they answer to them. They are a volunteer organization, solely focused on making our parks enjoyable, accessible, and beautiful places for all of us to enjoy.

 

Each print sold will benefit the Kentucky State Parks Foundation and their cause to help others experience the essence and pride of who we are as a state. There are 16 prints for 16 different parks, each designed by a different kick-ass Kentucky Artist.

 

Starting this Tuesday, April 17th, 2018 we’ll be launching the first 3 parks, Cumberland Falls State Park by Harold Apples, Lake Barkley State Park by Liz Morse, and White Hall Historic Site by Bullhorn. The series will continue each Tuesday until May 15th, so keep an out for your favorite park. Go outside and visit them!
