Artist in Residence

Hi, my name is Jason Wise, and I’m a 2017 Artist in Residence with the San Gabriel Mountains National Monument. My job is to inspire you, my fellow Angelenos, to rediscover your backyard, and by doing so rediscover yourself.

I’m shining a light on the stunningly therapeutic natural resource, one that’s only minutes away from most of Southern California. I’m not going to tell you about what trail to hit, which mountain to climb, or where to find the most beautiful vista (that’ll be implicit), I’m going to tell you how these mountains make you feel (hint: they make you feel awesome).

This isn’t just art, this is an ethos. Join me for the journey, man.
