2009 Community Artist - Chad Niehaus
The Community Artist in the Parks program provided a unique opportunity to refine my skills as a printmaker, particularly in a plein air setting. I was able to share my passion for lands protected by the National Park Service and to discuss the power of natural places for artistic inspiration with visitors from around the world.
