Weir Farm National Historic Site, the only National Park Service site dedicated to American painting, was home to three generations of American artists. Today, the 60-acre park, which includes the Weir House, Weir and Young Studios, barns, gardens, and Weir Pond, is one of the nation’s finest remaining landscapes of American art.
Theodore Clement Steele
T.C. Steele State Historic Site includes the last home and studio of Indiana landscape painter Theodore Clement Steele, a member of the Hoosier Group of American Impressionist painters. Gardens and woodlands around the House of the Singing Winds, as he named it, inspired many well-known works. Hills, woods and sky continue to inspire visitors. The historic buildings are filled with original artwork, surrounded by 211 acres of gardens and wooded trails.

Donald Clarence Judd
From 1968 until his death in 1994, the sculptor Donald Judd used this 1870 cast-iron loft building as his home and studio. Here he had the opportunity to demonstrate his ideas about art installation. Judd’s use of the building is seen as part of the rise of the SoHo artistic community in New York City.
Georgia O’Keeffe
The Abiquiu house, garden, and surrounding views were a great source of inspiration to Georgia O’Keeffe. It is a property that she put much time and love into, making it “a house of her own.”
Clementine Hunter
African American folk artist Clementine Hunter (1887-1988), who lived and worked for 75 years at Melrose Plantation, attracted the attention of the world with her colorful memory paintings of life on a rural southern plantation during the first half of the 20th century. She worked at night by the light of a kerosene lantern, in a simple wooden cabin, located in the shadow of the plantation’s Big House. In these humble circumstances, she found her talent and made an unlikely and extraordinary career as an artist.
