Artists Invited to Participate in Artist-in-Residence Program at Zion N.P.
October 28, 2009
Zion National Park and the Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery are joining together for the Park’s 2010 Artist-in-Residence program. Visual artists from across the country are encouraged to apply for this four-week program. Application materials are available at www.nps.gov/Zion and are due by October 31, 2009.
One artist for each session, February 2010 and April 2010, will be selected and given a space to live and work, free of charge. During the program, the artist will create artwork and present a public program to talk about their experiences at the park. At the completion of the four-week period, one piece of artwork created at Zion will be donated to the Zion Natural History Association.
The Artist-in-Residence program is in its third year at Zion National Park.
Artists have been an important part of the National Park System for more than a century. Artwork created in the National Parks serves as a voice for conservation efforts and creates a permanent record of the parks.
For more information about the Artist in Residence program at Zion National Park, visit www.nps.gov/Zion or call 435-772-0159. The Braithwaite Fine Arts Gallery’s mission is to exhibit, collect and preserve historic and contemporary works of art significant to the interior American West. In addition, the Museum hosts art exhibitions that represent the principal artistic styles and periods of world cultures.
