The Artist-in-Residence program throughout the National Park system provides artists a means of experiencing the Parks and the Parks a piece of art to share with the world.  In 2012, the National Park Service teamed up with other protected areas in the Voices of the Wilderness program to connect and promote Wilderness areas and the Wilderness Act nationwide.  For more information about this program and the opportunities available for 2013, visit the Voices of the Wilderness website
