Since 2001, a total of 60 accomplished artists, writers, and composers have participated in the Artist-in-Residence program. Following a 10-day residency, each volunteers to lead a public outreach activity with visitors and to donate one piece of art to the program collection.

Artists are challenged to create pieces for visitors that offer a fresh and innovative perspective of the park drawn from their own experience.
