Newsflash From A Member

ARCS member Joan Bacharach, Senior Curator, Museum Management Program with the US National Park Service is pleased to announce a wonderful new publication and virtual exhibit .

TREASURED LANDSCAPES: National Park Service Art Collections Tell America’s Stories has been published by the National Park Service Museum Management Program to commemorate the National Park Service Centennial, 1916-2016. It features stunning paintings, watercolors, sketches, and works on paper from over 50 National Park Service museum collections, seen together for the first time. The artworks capture the diversity of the national parks and Park Service collections, as well as the richness of artists’ encounters. They reflect the critical role that landscape art played in the establishment of the National Park Service. The works shown here capture awe-inspiring landscapes, honor individuals who have contributed to the nation’s identity, and commemorate inspiring American ideas and events. Treasured Landscapes was awarded the 2016 John Wesley Powell Prize by the Society for History in the Federal Government and listed as one of the American Library Association’s Notable Government Documents 2016 collection.
