Active National Park Service
Artist-in-Residence Programs >

National parks have always welcomed artistic interpretations in support of land advocacy. Thomas Moran's evocative and astounding paintings directly influenced the establishment of our first National Park (Yellowstone, 1872).

This tradition continues today with more than 40 Artist-in-Residence programs throughout the National Park Service system.
