welcome to yosemite renaissance
For over three decades, Yosemite Renaissance has encouraged and promoted diverse artistic expressions of Yosemite National Park and the surrounding area.
Yosemite Renaissance was founded in 1985 to "motivate artists to develop diverse interpretations of Yosemite and its varied landscapes." Artists from around the country have been showcased in the annual Yosemite Renaissance traveling exhibit for more than thirty years.
Yosemite Renaissance 33 opens in February at the Yosemite Museum Gallery!
The Yosemite Renaissance Exhibition is an annual exhibit that offers an opportunity for artists inspired by Yosemite and the California Sierra Nevada region to display and promote their art. The exhibit opens at the historic Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery in the heart of Yosemite Valley, then travels to other art centers across California.
For over 150 years, artists have played an important role in the establishment of our state and national parks, inspiring people to visit iconic natural sites, and to protect our natural resources.
$5,000 in cash awards will be announced at the opening reception at the Yosemite National Park Museum Gallery.
