Huntsville, Alabama By Michael Korfhage, Joel Anderson, 2014
- Huntsville, Alabama
Welcome to Huntsville, Alabama, space town, the Rocket City, and a wealth of culture, history, and excitement. First established by settlers in 1805, Huntsville began as a textile mill town, then a munitions manufacturer, then a major military town, and finally a center for space research and flight testing for NASA in the 1950s. To this day, the city is a major hub for high technology, a city dedicated to continuing its pursuit of space travel and rocket science. Inspired by that dedication, Anderson Design Group rendered a vintage travel poster by hand, using the WPA art styles of the mid- century to create a wall decoration that inspires a reminiscent longing for this city and its important history.
