The Art Deco Society of California continues to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge with the unveiling of this fabulous poster designed by local artist John Mattos.

“John Mattos was a perfect choice to illustrate our poster,” says Karen Geer, ADSC Print Director. “He’s worked with the Parks Conservancy before and has illustrated other Art Deco buildings including the Fox Theatre in Oakland. His style has a real joy in it that plays out here beautifully.”

I agree. Mr. Mattos nicely captures the bridge’s angular Deco quality that we all love. I particularly like the rich colors he uses and inclusion of the nattily dressed lady and her dog.

The poster measures 16 inches by 32 inches and is printed on 30 percent recycled archival quality paper.

The ADSC is selling this poster as a fundraiser for the organization. A mere $75 will bring this collectible to you and support the ADSC, which strives to increase awareness of the Art Deco era as well as to preserve and promote its art, architecture, music, fashions, and other aspects of the period.

I see this poster as the perfect gift for any admirer of the Bay Area, Art Deco enthusiast, SF native … heck, anyone with impeccable taste!
