Inspired By Artist Submission

Do you get your creative inspiration from Yellowstone National Park?

Each summer and winter we’re thrilled to invite artists of all mediums to join us in transforming our lodges into vibrant showcases for creativity during our Inspired by Artist Marketplace. From the strokes of painters to the intricacies of jewelry makers, the brilliance of glass artists, the written wonders of writers, and the craftsmanship of leather works, our marketplace is a tapestry of artistic expression inspired by the surrounding beauty.

If your artwork draws inspiration from the breathtaking landscapes and wonders of Yellowstone National Park, we genuinely can’t wait to see it! This is an opportunity to share your unique creations with visitors who appreciate and seek the beauty that our park inspires.

We’ve listed some helpful FAQ’s about being an exhibitor below.

Marketplace FAQ’s and Guidelines

Our Artist Marketplaces take place at Old Faithful Inn, Old Faithful Lodge, Lake Yellowstone Hotel, and Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel in the summer as well as Old Faithful Snow Lodge and Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel in the winter. The summer season runs from late April through mid October and winter is from late November through early March.

We recommend you stay as long as possible. In most locations, the busy traffic times are from 11 am to early evening.  You are free to set your own times but we do ask that you let us know approximately when you will be there, so we are able to publicize your appearance.

During the summer at Old Faithful Inn you will be presenting with at least 1 other artist and at Mammoth Hot Springs Hotel there could be up to 2 other exhibitors. The number of other artist exhibitors at other locations can vary depending on dates and location.

You are responsible for your own travel to and from Yellowstone National Park.

If you need housing during your exhibition dates, we can accommodate most requests. Housing will be located inside the park and in the same village area, but we cannot guaranteed lodging in the lodge you are exhibiting in. You are expected to work an equal number of days to the number of nights you will be staying with us.  Family members are allowed to join you; however, we cannot reserve more than one room per night for your stay. Pets are not allowed unless they are registered service or service/emotional support animal.

We will provide meal coupons to our employee dining room for you for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Or you may eat at any of our restaurants at your own expense.

All sales will be processed through the Yellowstone National Park Lodges point of sale system.  No transactions between artist and guest are allowed. Upon acceptance as an Inspired by Artist you will receive the payment terms and conditions in detail along with your vendor set-up information.

All payment arrangements (excluding product that is already in our inventory) are based on a 50/50 split with the artist. You can establish the retail pricing.

At each of our venues, you will be representing yourself and your brand, as well as Yellowstone National Park Lodges.   We ask that you present yourself in a professional manner of dress that is consistent with our service standards of appearance and guest satisfaction. We are glad to provide any further guidance to you should you have any questions.

We will provide you with a 6’ table and a chair for your presentation. We do have Pro Panels available at all four locations.  If you are bringing your own fixtures, lighting, props, and set-up, we ask that you coordinate in advance with our Visual Merchandising Coordinator.

You are responsible for bringing all the merchandise you will sell with you. Any merchandise that you bring with you to sell at the Inspired by Yellowstone appearance remains your property until you sell it.  No product can be delivered or sold to our retail stores directly. If there is a specific circumstance or exception, this needs to be coordinated with the Retail Director.
