The National Park Service is currently accepting applications for the 2010 Community Artist in the Parks program. Established 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 parks and shares his/her inspiration and creative process with visitors from around the world.
