Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is seeking local artists whose work is engaged in issues that are relevant to the park interpretative themes, while also challenging the visitor to become an active participant in preservation and environmental and cultural advocacy. We are pleased to host artists who communicate complex and contemporary issues through their chosen medium. Artists in all genres and in all disciplines, contemporary, traditional, or folk who have a genuine interest in contributing to our on-going national discussion on these issues will be of special interest to our program.
The parks have always welcomed artistic interpretations in support of land advocacy. Thomas Moran's evocative and astounding paintings directly influenced the establishment of our first National Park (Yellowstone, 1872). This tradition continues today with more than 40 Artist-in-the-Parks throughout the National Park Service system.
With changing times come bold new visions of what art can contribute to our conversation about preservation, environmental issues, and park (and arts) advocacy. Whether you are a traditionalist in the vein of Thomas Moran or a contemporary artist creating new paths towards understanding both environmental and cultural issues, you are welcome here.
The Artist-in-Park Program offers artists the opportunity to spend four weeks working in the park. These four weeks may be able to be spread over a longer time frame. We encourage all interested artists to apply.
Apply here to be our next Artist-in-Park!
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older.
Applicants are required to submit a complete application packet (click above).
Artists are expected to work 120 hours, spread over a period of 30 consecutive calendar days.
Artists must give at least one public presentation during their time in the park. This presentation can take many forms, such as:
Within six months of completion of their time in the park, artists will be required to donate to the park one piece of art they have created during the program.
The park will furnish the artist with the necessary supplies for their work up to a maximum of $250. All artists who successfully complete the program will receive a $200 honorarium from the Glen Canyon Natural History Association.
Studio space is not available in the park at this time. Work would be conducted in the park at various locations, both in and out of doors.
