NPS Collection

The AIR program at Indiana Dunes offers professional artists the opportunity to live in the park for two weeks to create art that helps generate appreciation and support for the national lakeshore. In exchange, the artist provides a public program and donates one piece of art created during their stay.

The work produced by these artists becomes a permanent part of the park's collection, which will be available for the public to view at various art galleries and other historic locations
