Artists have created art in national parks since the late 19th century when famed Hudson River School painters captured the majestic views of our nation’s western parks.  Today, the sights and sounds in national parks continue to inspire artists in more than 50 residency programs across the country.  These programs provide artists with unique opportunities to create works of art in varied natural and cultural settings.
