Golden Gate Bridge 2012 by John Mattos
Measures 16" x 32"

The Art Deco Society of California (ADSC) is pleased to unveil this poster designed by local artist John Mattos, whose heroic style does justice to the most recognized Art Deco structure on planet Earth, the Golden Gate Bridge.

“Using John Mattos was the perfect choice,” says Karen Geer, ADSC Print Director. “He’s worked with the Parks Conservancy before and has illustrated other Art Deco buildings including the Fox Theatre in Oakland. His style has a real joy in it that plays out here beautifully.”

The ADSC will be selling this poster as a fundraiser for the organization for $75.00 for non-members. The poster, measuring 16 inches by 32 inches, is printed by one of the Bay Area’s greenest printers, Solstice Press, on 30% recycled archival quality paper.

The Art Deco Society of California is pleased to partner with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy in a celebration of the 75th anniversary of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, CA. Throughout 2012 ADSC will be hosting events and developing projects that honor the Golden Gate Bridge as not just an engineering masterpiece but an art deco treasure as well.

Don't miss the Art Deco Preservation Ball an official kick-off to the celebration May 5, 2012!

Throughout the month of April, ADSC members may purchase the poster for $40.00.
