Description Color offset lithograph. Print of one of the 3M Company's Bicentennial paintings. Print of a painting of the arrival of early immigrants to America.

The landscape is yellow/green and the sea is grey. Printed beneath the image is black text with the piece's title, and manufacturing credits. Written beneath the lower left corner is John Falter's signature in graphite.
