Artists in National Parks
These visual records of early artists helped to stimulate the establish of many of our national parks.
Today, painters continue to document national park landscapes with contemporary approaches and techniques. Writers, sculptors, musicians, composers, and other performing artists also draw upon the multifaceted quality of parks for inspiration.
These artists translate the national parks purpose, as a place of pleasure and preservation, into images which bring others enjoyment and a deeper understanding of the parks that many Americans may never visit.
