90 Year Anniversary signs

We are celebrating 90 years of Dahlias in Minnesota (first MDS president was in 1929) so we want a poster for each decade since. The poster should include:

  • a photo or graphic design as well as text.
  • Something about the club or dahlias in that decade.
  • Something about America or culture in that decade.
  • Each decade topic include a specific reference (for the Artistic Arrangements)
  • It can include some detail about the division (from the show book).
  •  

Here is the decade topic list and who it is assigned to. Which one (or more) do you want to design?
