Beginning in 2005 Sequoia Parks Foundation has hosted groups of exceptional artists for week-long retreats in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks. The partnership between the Sequoia Parks Foundation and the fine arts community seeks to develop new ways of communicating the value of the parks to the public.

Through these programs the Foundation hopes to facilitate the creation of new bodies of art based on park landscapes and features, encourage artists to involve themselves in wilderness, and assist both artists and the public in rediscovering the High Sierra. This program seeks to inspire the artists to create work based on Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks and encourage collaboration and dialogue with one another and with Park Service personnel regarding the protection and support of these parks.
