The National Parks Arts Foundation (NPAF) is the only nationwide non-profit providing Artist-in-Residence Programs (AiR), Workshops, Exhibits and Museum Loans uniquely in cooperation with National Parks, National Monuments, State Parks, World Heritage Sites and other park locations.

NPAF partners with the National Park Service, State Parks, park partners, schools, under-served organizations, museums, galleries and other entities in promotion of our successful programs. We are also always looking for established and unusual artists who are interested in doing public workshops in the parks. To discover all that the foundation has to offer or to apply to our many residencies please visit our main site at

NPAF Artist-in-Residency locations include: Hawai’i Volcanoes and Haleakalā National Parks in Hawaii; Chaco Culture, Aztec Ruins and Fort Union in New Mexico; Dry Tortugas National Park in Florida; Death Valley National Park in California; Gettysburg National Military Park in Pennsylvania, and more! Residency programs change and open up fast, so the best way to stay in the loop for these unrique opportunities is to subscribe to the NPAF e-newsletter and to follow NPAF on Twitter and Facebook.
