- Grand Canyon National Park: Mather Point Sunset
For many visitors coming to the South Rim, Mather Point offers the first glimpse of a world wonder. A short walk from the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, Mather Point offers an expansive view of the canyon. This viewpoint is named for Stephen Tyng Mather, the first director of the National Park Service. A wealthy businessman from Chicago, Mather was avid conservationist and supporter of public lands, who moved to Washington D.C. in 1915 to help found the National Park Service. Appointed its first director in 1917 he continued to promote park access, development, and use until he left office in 1929. Anderson Design Group handcrafted this vintage national parks poster art in a style reminiscent of the early-1900s, the same time period when the park was first created. Decorate your walls with this classic retro art piece, an ADG Store design that harkens back to a peaceful memory.
