2009 Artist-in-the-Parks Program
Contact: Nancy Holman, 435-719-2240
The Community Artist-in-the-Parks program highlights the connection between an artist and his/her inspiration. During the 2009 season, Chad Niehaus, an award-winning artist based in Moab, will be in the Southeast Utah Group National Parks (Arches and Canyonlands National Parks and Natural Bridges and Hovenweep National Monuments).
To discover how Chad turns inspiration into art, come visit him in the parks (see schedule below). Chat with him about an artist's inspiration, witness the creative process, and maybe purchase an original print that you saw him create. Times are posted in the visitor center and with the artist out in the park.
Chad Niehaus creates acrylic paintings, pastel drawings, and linocut prints inspired by the open spaces of the Colorado Plateau. His work has been featured in A Century of Sanctuary: The Art of Zion National Park, Painters of Utah's Canyons and Deserts, and on NPR's Radio West. More information is available on his website, www.MoabArt.com or by calling Niehaus' Moab studio at (435) 259-9314.

Did You Know?
Landscape Arch is the longest arch in Arches National Park, measuring 306 feet from base to base. In 1991, a massive slab of rock fell from its underside, resulting in an even thinner ribbon of rock.
