About the Artist
The artwork for the 2016 National Public Works Week poster was done by British-born artist Michael Crampton. After studying at the Art Center College of Design, Crampton went on to become the art director at Neiman Marcus in Dallas. Six years later he moved to New York City and now freelances in the U.S. and in Europe. His favorite subjects include lifestyle and travel, and his artwork tends to evoke a sense of romance found in posters from an earlier era. (Poster courtesy APWA)
