The 18th poster in the series created for the Tallac Historic Site’s annual Great Gatsby Days Festival is now available. The latest poster by well-known local artist Darcie Park depicts a family canoe outing on Lake Tahoe in 1928. The poster is titled “Don’t Rock The Boat” and takes place near Camp Richardson and the Heller home, Valhalla. This is the ninth poster that Park has created for Great Gatsby Days.
The posters are signed, numbered and include a certificate of authenticity. They measure 18-by-24-inches and the cost is $25 each. They may be obtained at the bookstore in the museum, located in the Baldwin House at the Tallac Historic Site. For collectors, a small quantity of the previous posters are also available at the museum.
The Great Gatsby Days Festival, depicting the heyday of the three estates on the Tallac site, is scheduled Aug. 11and 12. The event, which is free except for tours of the historic Pope House and the Sunday Tea at Valhalla, will include many volunteers dressed in Roaring ’20s attire. There will be a display of vintage cars, vendors of period products, games for children, strolling musicians, and food vendors on the site.
The Tallac Historic Site is located on Highway 89 at the south end of Lake Tahoe. It is managed by the U.S. Forest Service in conjunction with the Tallac Historic Foundation and the Tahoe Tallac Association. Call (530) 541-5227.
