The Artist-in-Residence Program at Glacier National Park offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. The program seeks professional artists whose work is related to the park’s interpretative themes and supports the mission of the National Park Service.
Glacier National Park’s Interpretive Themes:
  • The geologic features of Glacier National Park combine natural beauty, examples of mountain building, and the effects of glaciation, revealing many chapters in the history of the Earth. 
  • Glacier National Park offers a variety of wilderness experiences that provide the challenges and rewards of encountering nature on its own terms while conveying the necessity of stewardship for the land.
  • Glacier National Park's designation as part of the world's first International Peace Park celebrates on-going peace, cooperation, and goodwill between two nations, and symbolizes the ideal of peace among all nations.
  • Glacier's cultural resources chronicle the evolving history of human activities, interactions, and experiences in the American west that reveal changes in societal attitudes about land and its uses.
  • The enduring connection between the Blackfeet, Salish, and Kootenai peoples and the landscape and resources of the area known as Glacier National Park is reflected through their history, traditions, language, and contemporary values.
  • The establishment of Glacier National Park and its geographic location has enabled its ecological processes and biological diversity to survive relatively intact in a rapidly changing and encroaching world.
