2013 Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller-Arts and Conservation Stewardship Program

K2FF and the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park

Art and Conservation Stewardship Program

Again in 2013, the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park and the K2 Family Foundation will be co-sponsoring the Art and Conservation Stewardship Program.

American artists have long helped create public awareness and support for the stewardship of public lands by broadening and deepening connections to the landscape through art.

The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park is recognized for its collection of historical, environmentally inspired paintings. Through this Art and Conservation Stewardship Program, the Park and Foundation invite one environmentally focused artist each year to be in residence and to create artwork in response to the park and the surrounding environs.

By working with contemporary artists, the Park and Foundation hope to help extend the conversation between artists, land, and audience that has been a persistent and significant aspect of the Park. The program provides each artist in residence with the time and space needed to explore new thoughts and ideas in their own artistic manner.
