This Grand Lake Poster by CSU Alum Blair Hamill calls attention to our public lands, their conservation, and the spiritual connection we have with those places. That connection with the out-of-doors is what has compelled our artist, Blair Hamill, to craft our posters. Blair has spent decades criss-crossing the Rocky Mountain West. When researching and designing new posters, he takes to the field and captures vistas that evoke a feeling of awe. When a particular place is located, he records information through observations, painted studies, sketches, photographs, and notes. He then takes those observations back to the studio for completion.
His love for the land began by building trails in the Rockies in his teens, backpacking in the wilderness, exploring national parks, snowshoeing and skiing. The trails he now leads people on are through his posters and paintings. His art continues to spark a sense of place, story, and memory for travelers on their own personal journeys through the Rocky Mountain West.
Our posters are designed with a love for the Rocky Mountain landscape. Caring for our public lands in the Rocky Mountain West requires the work of dedicated individuals and non-profit organizations. Because of this, each year we give back a portion of our proceeds to the Colorado 14ers Initiative (CFI), the non-profit organization dedicated to the conservation of our Rocky Mountain Region’s highest peaks.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” — John Muir
