It’s been a few years since Parks and Recreation came a close, leaving the Pawnee National Park in the fully capable hands of none other than Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman). And if you’ve been hoping to commemorate that beautiful moment when the government naysayer finally got his dream job in his hometown, then we have good news.
Shortly after Parks and Recreation came to an end, artist Mark Englert teamed up with Bottleneck Gallery to release a limited edition poster celebrating Pawnee National Park. It sold out pretty quickly and it’s been quite the coveted print among collectors for some time. But now you have your chance to get your hands on an official reprint of the beautiful piece in question, and your money will go to support the Los Angeles Fire Department as they continue to battle the devastating wildfires in California.

The NBC comedy series Parks and Recreation had an incredible ensemble of memorable characters from seven seasons of hilarity, but none of them hold a candle to the miniature horse known as Li’l Sebastian. That’s because he’s 5,000 candles in the wind.
While fans might have thought that we’d seen the last of Li’l Sebastian, since he traded his legs for angels wings, let’s not forget that Parks and Recreation creator Michael Schur is also the creator of The Good Place, which just so happens to take place in the afterlife. So it should come as no surprise that Li’l Sebastian recently popped up in The Good Place along with a whole bunch of animals. Find out about the Lil Sebastian cameo that you likely missed in The Good Place below. Read More »

Cinema is full of famous couples, and pop culture artist Nan Lawson pays tribute to nearly a couple dozen of them in her Meet Cute 2 art show at Gallery 1988. However, rather than assembling the most obvious couples from the big screen, Lawson has focused on some more niche choices and less likely pairings that we’ve seen in movies over the years.
Gallery 1988 has unveiled the entire line-up of pieces in the Nan Lawson Meet Cute 2 art show, featuring the couples of The Big Lebowski, Beetlejuice, Baby Driver, Mary Poppins, Fantastic Mr. Fox, Parks and Recreation, The Royal Tenenbaums, Bob’s Burgers, Batman Returns, Stranger Things, The Shape of Water and more.

Though the production design of shows like The Office and Parks and Recreation do their best to make the primary locations feel like a real place, it’s a sad reality that fans will never be able to walk through the offices of the Dunder-Mifflin Paper Company or the Pawnee City Hall. But the marketing department over at the real estate company Drawbotics decided to give us the next best thing.
