ABOUT THE ART
"This Big Sur Coast print, created in partnership with The Fifty-Nine Parks Print Series, features the graceful and iconic Bixby Creek bridge along with a beautiful stretch of the California coastal cliffs and Pacific Ocean. I’ve been to this location in person several times, and it is breathtaking in any weather at any time of the year. I feel very lucky to have a system of parks in California preserved for public enjoyment and are valued landmarks. I think it is essential to keep some spaces dominated by nature for the sake of the environment and citizens’ quality of life. Proceeds from this print will help maintain the parks."
