“The Artist’s Experience” offers reflections on the national park experience from composers, illustrators, installation artists, musicians, painters and sculptors: the sources of inspiration they find in parks, its deep impact on their work, and the power of art to alter our sense of a place.
“100 Years of Arts in the Parks” celebrates how artists inspired the creation of the national parks and are helping to re-imagine the parks today. Each of these short videos features an astonishing collection of art inspired by the national park system’s equally incredible range of natural, cultural and historic park sites. Art works were generously shared by more 150 artists and arts organizations from national parks across the country. We thank them all.
I was honored to be featured (along with @patcummins and @amybogard) on this beautiful website. Not only is it elegantly designed, the project is very cool and the maps they are creating are works of art. Check it out! [LINK]
WELCOME TO THE NATIONAL PARK QUEST, A JOURNEY OF KARLA AND ANDRES, TWO ARTISTS WHO ARE INSPIRED BY AN IDEA THAT PROTECTS OUR NATURAL WORLD. ON APRIL 16TH, 2016 WE LEFT OHIO WITH NO STRINGS ATTACHED AND HEADED OUT WITH JUST OUR OUTBACK AND TOOLS TO TOUR THIS GREAT COUNTRY VIA THE 59 NATURAL NATIONAL PARKS.
We are living nomadically for nearly two years, tent camping most of the way and showcasing the parks through the eyes of its artists. Along this journey we are gathering ideas to create the Centennial Poster Series, a collection of 59 historic styled posters, one designed to honor each park as we visit them.
Christopher Frost: Hespera Stones on the New England Trail
Exploring the role of art in the New England landscape, sculptor Christopher Frost’s Hespera Stones illuminate shaded paths along the New England National Scenic Trail (NET) in Skinner State Park in Hadley, Massachusetts. Each of the three solar-powered stones glows with a stanza of Emily Dickinson’s “The Mountains Stood In Haze.”
Frost’s previous work includes art in national and state parks in Massachusetts, including Boston National Historical Park, Bradley Palmer State Park and Maudslay State Park. In consultation with park and trail managers at the Appalachian Mountain Club, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the National Park Service, Frost chose the scenic Holyoke Range as the site for the installation.
The project was funded by the Fund for the Arts, a restricted fund of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible by generous support from anonymous donors. One of the goals for the NET is to be a national model for using art in the interpretation of National Scenic Trails. The 215-mile, volunteer-maintained New England Trail was designated as a National Scenic Trail in Connecticut and Massachusetts in 2009.
