About Great Sand Dunes
Great Sand Dunes was first preserved on March 17, 1923 as Great Sand Dunes National Monument. On September 13, 2004 an act of the United States Congress protected the Great Sand Dunes as a national park. The park covers roughly 19,000 acres in Colorado between the Saguache and Alamosa Counties.

Within the park are alpine lakes and tundra, streams, waterfalls, and deposits of black sand. With the highest peak at 750 feet, The Great Sand Dunes are home to the tallest sand dunes in North America. Outside of preserving the topography of the region, The Great Sand Dunes National Park protects the water beneath the sand, vital for nearby cities and agriculture.

For his poster, Jeremy Spears crafted his composition from wood and used digital means to bring it all together. As he explained, “I carved and painted all the pieces to this poster by hand. I then lit and photographed all the elements and composed the whole thing in Photoshop. The herd of bison was actually built off of one bison carving I did. The bison head and body were separate, so I could photograph each from different angles and lighting situations. The only thing that wasn't carved out of wood was the letters which was a custom font used on all the posters for this series.”
