That’s a wrap! The Yellowstone Art & Photography Center, located in the Old Faithful area between the Visitor Education Center and Old Faithful Lodge, finished up its second full season this September. Nearly 100,000 visitors of all ages came through the doors this year to participate in daily hands-on activities, peruse a collection of historic and contemporary art with Yellowstone as the subject, visit and learn from our seven artists-in-residence, or simply to purchase art and photography supplies.
Here is just some of the feedback we received from participants in our painting activities:
“Totally awesome! One of the best ideas in years! What a great way to introduce the general public to art and history.” Jenny Hinberg, Washington.
“This is a wonderful program! Please, keep it up. It is a great way to experience Yellowstone and walk away with a souvenir.” Karla Jesse, Idaho
“Great program! So glad we happened upon it. Kids and adults enjoyed. Wish we could do it every day.” Melody Ng, Minnesota
If you are visiting the park next year, stop by for a truly unique Yellowstone experience that you won’t forget or regret. Take a look at these 2018 season photos for an idea of the kinds of activities and family-friendly fun to be had at the center. The YA&PC opens back up the Friday of Memorial Day weekend, May 24. Hope to see you there in 2019!
