Yellowstone has a long history of inspiring artists from around the world. Before the park was created, artist Thomas Moran, along with photographer William H. Jackson, documented the wonders of the park, helping build support for its preservation. Since the creation of Yellowstone National Park in 1872, thousands of artists have followed in their footsteps, finding inspiration from the park’s wild places and wildlife. This relationship of beauty and the desire to interpret it will continue to enthrall artists, young and old, far into the future.
