Artists Announced for Glen Canyon National Recreation Areas 2012 Artist-in-Park Program
Artists selected for this year's Artist-in-Park program represent a wide range of visual techniques, yet share common inspiration in the landscape. Their work contributes to the long legacy of using art to support public understanding of environmental and cultural significance.
March 3 - March 30 at Lees Ferry: Landscape Painter, Susan J. Klein - Sarasota, FL
April 2 - April 27 at Lees Ferry: Hand-woven Tapestry, Lyn Hart - Tucson, AZ
June 2 - 30 at Wahweap: Watercolor Artist, Jerry Lindsay - Page, AZ
October 1 - 31 at Wahweap: Mixed Media Collage, Anita Dallar - Crystal River, FL
Each artist will offer a variety of demonstrations, workshops, and programs to the public during their time in the park. The presentations will be set in multiple park locations.
Artists were chosen by a panel represented by the National Park Service and the Glen Canyon Natural History Association, as well as Glen Canyon's first Artist-in-Park, Suzanne Schmaltz. Applications were received from visual, musical, and performance artists all over the United States.
