The Record 2020 is a publication through the Garland County Historical Society that contains articles exploring the heritage of Garland County.

The article, “Paint How a Straight Line Feels: Stories from the Artist-in-Residence Program at Hot Springs National Park” focuses on the 2004 artist-in-residence program hosted by the National Park. Artists from all over would travel to Hot Springs to live in a cabin located in the Gulpha Gorge where they would produce art, host events and ultimately donate some of their art to the National Park Service. Though the program was put on hold in 2017 due to repairs, the National Park Service plans to reopen the cabin in 2021.
