Historic Kolb Studio Art and History Exhibits
2014 Grand Canyon Celebration of Art
Hosted each year by the Grand Canyon Association, the Grand Canyon Celebration of Art is an annual event that includes 6 days of art related events followed by a 3 month long exhibition in Kolb Studio on the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
Each artist brings a completed studio piece with them and then creates more artwork on the South Rim, on the North Rim, at Phantom Ranch and at Indian Garden during the "Plein Air at the Canyon" and Quick Draw events that takes place in the historic district of Grand Canyon Village. During the auction that follows the Quick Draw event on September 20, 2014, park residents and visitors have the opportunity to bid on the work and to bring a piece of Grand Canyon home.
Once the home and business of the Kolb Brothers, pioneering photographers and filmmakers at Grand Canyon, this rambling, Victorian era building (1905) is currently being restored to its original splendor through the help of donors.

The Amazing Kolb Brothers
A Grand Life at the Grand Canyon !
However, if you step inside, or see it from the Bright Angel Trail on your hike out of the canyon, you get the sense that it is much more than that.
This is the Victorian home of the Kolb Brothers who created a lasting legacy of adventure, exploration, family love, and amazing Grand Canyon photography that will last as long as the Canyon itself.
