The Working Proof: Hollie Chastain - Unplug

Unplug, by Hollie Chastain.
15% of the sale of this print goes to American Forests.

Yesterday was the first day of spring, and Unplug is a celebration of the changing season. After a long winter of hanging out indoors and spending a lot of time in front of a computer screen, it's time to unplug and go outside! I love the sentiment (and need the reminder!). The print, by Hollie Chastain, was originally created for a group show centered around a modern take on the Works Progress Administration posters of the 1930s, promoting health and safety, travel and educational programs. The artists involved with the group show were challenged to create a poster with a modern message, Hollie's being that there is always more adventure and beauty in nature than we can ever find online.

15% of each print sold will be donated to American Forests, which Hollie felt was the natural choice to pair with this print, as there will be nothing left of 'outside' to enjoy unless we start taking better care of it. Read our interview with Hollie here, and buy the print here.
