Yellowstone National Park announces the release of Yellowstone: Color It Wild, a coloring book for all ages featuring 26 regional artists and writers inspired by the scenery of Yellowstone. The book includes illustrations, short essays, poems, and inspiring historical and contemporary quotes.
Adult coloring books have become a publishing phenomenon, and Yellowstone: Color It Wild offers fresh inspiration for those who enjoy these books as well as an inviting format for those discovering this hobby for the first time. The book encourages visitors to take a journey around the Grand Loop of Yellowstone and experience the park through the art and words. Coloring enthusiasts can use their inspiration to color and create illustrations or doodles of their own that conjure memories of their time exploring Yellowstone National Park.
To celebrate the release of the new book and the ongoing role of arts in national parks, Yellowstone National Park will offer a monthly Visiting Artist Outreach Program throughout the summer in the park. Featured artists will provide opportunities to group color and to explore the artist’s preferred medium.
Written and visual reflections on Yellowstone aroused the interest of the world and resulted in Yellowstone National Park’s designation as the world’s first national park. Today, regional artists and writers share their creations and experiences about the wonders that are Yellowstone National Park.
Yellowstone: Color It Wild is a collaborative effort between Yellowstone National Park, the Yellowstone Association, and Montana State University Institute on Ecosystems. Yellowstone: Color It Wild (76 pages, soft cover, $14.95) is available in Yellowstone Association park stores and online.
