Artists have had a long-standing impact on the formation, expansion and direction of our country’s national parks. All of these artists translate the national park’s purpose, as a place of pleasure and preservation, into images which bring others enjoyment and a deeper understanding of the parks some may never visit.
Rocky Mountain National Park’s Artist-In-Residence program provides artists the opportunity to become a part of a long established tradition of artists in our national parks, and will produce works that will help celebrate Rocky Mountain National Park's 100 year anniversary in 2015.
