Artyarns dedicates a series of colorways to America's glorious National Parks!
What comes to mind when you think about the US National Parks? Yosemite, Yellowstone, but did you know that there are over 61 National Parks in the US? And that's not including monuments or historic properties!
Our newest edition, the third in the series, is inspired by Grand Canyon National Park, in Arizona, home to much of the immense Grand Canyon, with its layered bands of red rock revealing millions of years of geological history. Viewpoints include Mather Point, Yavapai Observation Station and architect Mary Colter’s Lookout Studio and her Desert View Watchtower. Lipan Point, with wide views of the canyon and Colorado River, is a popular, especially at sunrise and sunset.
Our national parks welcome more than 300 million visitors a year, and all of them are fabulous visual inspirations! But, they are struggling! Under funding cut threats from the current administration, as well as threats from logging, oil and gas drilling, the parks need our help! As part of our series, Artyarns will be donating a percentage of earnings on this fabulous line of colors to the National Park Service!
