Future Park/Art Professionals

Every summer Joshua Tree hosts high school student interns. Experiment C aims to build on this program by bringing college-age youth from partners Otis College of Art and Design and the Copper Mountain College Art Program to work with these interns on creative projects. Local teens will gain exposure to college students pursuing creative fields. Teams will create mission-assistive projects and programming for the park, aimed at their young adult age group. In doing so, they will learn specific skills, gain new role models, and discover new opportunities for their own futures. This experiment will be jointly run by Joshua Tree National Park, Otis College, and Copper Mountain College Faculty Cathy Allen, an alumna of Otis College of Art and Design.
