Using New Art and media to bring conservation to new audiences.
The goal of the Future Parks Foundation is to create engaging new forms of art to cultivate the support the national parks need. The Future Parks Foundation guides world-class digital artists into national parks where they are free to be inspired by and create in nature. The output and products of these trips are then made widely available in their various native formats.
The new art of Nature
The Second Century of America's Best Idea
Throughout the history of the National Park Service there have been numerous challenges in achieving the pioneering goal of conservation for the public good. Today is no exception, as the National Parks are under unprecedented strain while receiving historically low levels of political and financial support. If the Parks are to continue to thrive they will need the support of the people who love them.
