Yellowstone Artist in Residence: (Due: Oct 1, March 1, 2020)

Art was a major force in the successful efforts to create the world’s first national park, Yellowstone.

Thomas Moran’s paintings and drawings, William Henry Jackson’s photographs, and the scientific reports of Ferdinand Hayden helped convince Congress in 1872 that Yellowstone was worth protecting.

Art created in Yellowstone continues to inspire people around the world to preserve places for spiritual rejuvenation, educational opportunities, scientific inquiry, and connection to the beauty of the natural world.

As part of Yellowstone Forever’s work to celebrate the wonder of the park, we are proud to offer the Landis Artist-in-Residency program for artists working to carry on the work that has connected so many people to this magical place.
