Community Artist Applications Accepted
Contact: Karen Henker, (435) 719-2242
The National Park Service Southeastern Utah Group is currently accepting applications for the 2013 Community Artist in the Parks program.
Created in 2009, the Community Artist in the Parks program highlights the connection between a local artist and the surrounding landscape, particularly Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges National Monuments. The Artist creates work within the NPS units and shares his/her inspiration and creative process with visitors from around the world.
Artists must be residents of Grand or San Juan Counties.
Program details, short videos by former Community Artists, and application information are available online.
Questions may also be directed to Chad Niehaus, the 2009 Community Artist in the Parks, at (435) 259-9314 or Chad@MoabArt.com.
