More Information

The Rockwell presents Art of the National Parks, an new self-guided tour that marks the centennial celebration for the National Park Service, which created nature destinations such as Yosemite, Yellowstone, Grand Teton, Grand Canyon, and Glacier national parks. The tour, which continues throughout 2016, will feature art that exemplifies the parks, as well as artists who were instrumental in building public support for the creation of the National Park Service. The exhibition reveals how early explorer artists like George Catlin and Karl Bodmer documented America’s majesty and used art to influence preservation back in Washington, D.C.
