States of the Arts

Bringing together 54 talented artists from the different parts of the United States—including Guam, The US Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico—this 100% recyclable, 54-card deck was curated to showcase the work of local artists to the world at large. Vibrant color and poignant imagery adorn the cards, each a miniature study in diversity. No longer will playing Go-Fish just kill some time--it will feed your soul, as well. Made in Orlando, FL.

        Comments about THE USA PROJECT PLAYING CARDS:

        I don't play cards. I bought these with the intention of -- if they were as nice as they looked online -- laying them out grid-style in a large frame and hanging them in my studio/office (I'm a graphic designer.)

        These cards didn't disappoint! The artwork, color reproduction, and quality are all superb. I can't wait to find the right frame and get these up on the wall, adding color, personality, and inspiration to my studio.

        If you do play cards? These should hold up as well as any other deck -- they're just a whole lot prettier.

                A 54 piece art project from around the US is certainly clever, but this collection takes it even further. The U.S.A. Project steps up the game by incorporating the work of artists from across the country into a playable card deck. Would you pull these out on poker night?

                Beautiful little ACEO thingys, but what is the point? Is there a game? Is it fun? Maybe it is just the description that fails me.

                Fabulous looking!!!! Great idea - love it - you could change it up with new artists each year, make a calendar each year, make coasters - wow! Maybe some people would complain that the cards are hard to read, but I think they would work fine.

                I've seen the portland deck and it is really cool. Not your everyday deck. Everyone who has come over and played with them asks me where I got them. Can't wait to see the USA deck.

                I've ordered from this catalog because of the fun and novel offerings. This deck of cards is so unique and innovative and yet is so representative of the creativity of American artists. A really great idea!

                For the card players out there, I vote yes! Personally, I'm not turned on in the least by the cards. I can imagine the USA Project Deck of cards was a lot of hard work to put together, but for all of that work, you won't make it to any space station. Generating an idea doesn't mean much if it doesn't meet a couple of needs: useful or artistically stimulating. In all fairness, I don't play card games.
