Joshua Tree National Park Council for the Arts
. . . a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization; all donations are tax deductible.
National Geographic designated the Mojave Desert as one of the 100 most beautiful places in the world in 2013, and a photograph of a Joshua tree at sunset in Joshua Tree National Park was published as its iconic image. More than 1.6 million visitors from around the globe are drawn each year to Joshua Tree National Park for its majestic views, twisted geology, bizarre flora, and abundant wildlife. A veritable wonderland of solitude, spectacle, and cultural inspiration, the park has influenced artists over the past 75+ years to make the pilgrimage for independent residencies, brief visits, or even long-term moves to this desert region
Joshua Tree National Park Council for the Arts was formed in 2013-2014 to help foster the spirit of artistic expression inspired by the park, celebrate the park's majestic landscape and precious wildlife, preserve the park's cultural history, and support the preservation, enhancement, and sustainability of the entire California Deserts Region.
