About the Washington Monument
Designed by Robert Mills and completed by Thomas Casey in conjunction with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Washington Monument was completed in two phases. From 1848-1854, a private Washington National Monument Society chose Mills’ design and began raising money for its construction, beginning with its cornerstone, a 24,500-pound block of pure white marble. It was officially dedicated February 21, 1885.

About the Artist
Photographer and graphic artist Rob Decker studied photography with Ansel Adams in Yosemite National Park during the summer of 1979. The experience solidified his love of photography and our National Parks. Now he is on a journey to photograph and create iconic WPA-style posters of all our major national parks as we celebrate the next 100 years of the National Park Service.
"I feel that it’s important to protect America’s special places, and to connect people with nature. And it’s up to all of us to pitch in. Perhaps more importantly, we need to inspire the next generation of park stewards. I’m trying to make a difference by giving back to the amazing organizations that support our National Parks. I donate 10% of annual profits, so when you buy one of these original works, you're helping these trusts, conservancies and associations, too."
