Volunteer Art Program


Led by Otis College alumna Jenny Kane, experiment B will build bridges to local and regional art communities by facilitating broad engagement. It allows artists to contribute on periodic or temporary bases and accommodates many disciplines, ages and talents.  All xB projects must be in some way pertinent to the park and its mission.

Artists' Tea fosters conversations. These gatherings connect the local and visiting art community to the park. Come to hear a short presentation, witness a demonstration, discuss ideas, or simply enjoy a cup of tea. Artists' Tea is open to all and meets most Sundays from 9am to 11am at Cap Rock. For more details, see the events page.


Artist Programs give artists opportunities to supplement existing Joshua Tree National Park interpretive efforts with programs of their own design. Such projects may include guided artist walks, evening programs, and themed exhibits. If you're interested in learning more, fill out the form on the JT Lab home page.


Artist Projects provides artists undertaking substantial projects of their own the opportunity to collaborate with park staff or to access park resources so as to enrich or complete their project. If you're interested in learning more, fill out the form on the JT Lab home page.
