Visual Art Collections

Coming from every corner of the United States, artists over time have drawn from the natural beauty, history, wonderment, and spirit of the national parks. Ranging from realistic depiction to abstract non-representation, the conceptual to the experimental, this collection of exhibitions marks the inspiration artists have taken from their national park artist residencies.

Working in media from painting, drawing, fabric arts, enameling, printmaking, photography, sculpture, and jewelry, there are a range of expressions, materials, and processes employed to depict the vantages and narratives in this diverse array of parks. We hope you visit each of these galleries to see for yourself the talent and creative expression of these artists.
