There are fewer joys than getting in on the beginning of a project — especially in the internet age when it seems that we catch things as they're wrapping up. 50 artists from around the country have been asked to illustrate their state motto and the fun is just getting started!
This summer in New York the Fifty and Fifty project will be hosting a gallery show featuring a large print release of some seriously amazing works of art. Dan Cassaro, a designer and animator out of Brooklyn, has put together a curated group of artists that have set out to illustrate all 50 state mottos by releasing one new piece each week day.
Although you'll have to wait a few months to be able to purchase prints for your pad, by the looks of the states already released, it will be well worth the wait. Since each print is done in the same color-way, you could hang all the states you've lived in together for an oversized art look without having to track down truly oversized artwork. We wanted to tell you now in case you're like us and require one from every state you've lived in and need a little time to save up your pennies!
You can check out a list of the artists on deck for the states still to come or keep an eye on the site daily for the latest releases! We'll make sure to let you know when prints go on sale, though we're calling dibs on a few states first!
