Historic Kolb Studio Art Exhibits
A Grand Life at Grand Canyon !
Friday, November 30, 2012 - Tuesday, September 03, 2013
At first glance, Kolb Studio is just a house perched on the rim of the Grand Canyon, but, if you look behind the doors or see it from the Bright Angel Trail after a long hike from the river, you realize it is much more than that.
It is the place where the Kolb Brothers created a lasting legacy of adventure, family love, and amazing Grand Canyon photography that will last as long as the Canyon itself.
This exhibit is presented by the Grand Canyon Association, Cline Library and Grand Canyon National Park. Additional funding is provided by the Babbitt Foundation, Pink Jeep Tours, Las Vegas and Sedona and Ms. Penny Schultz.
View the exhibit panels here.
Once the home and business of the Kolb Brothers, pioneering photographers and filmmakers at Grand Canyon, this rambling, Victorian era building (1905) has been restored to its original splendor. Visit the free Kolb Brothers exhibit, A Grand Life at the Grand Canyon in the auditorium, and shop in the bookstore. The exhibit is open through Tuesday, September 3, 2013. .

at the Bright Angel trailhead. This area is under construction through May 18, 2013. Detours are signed.

Did You Know?
Each year, thousands of hikers enter the Grand Canyon on the Bright Angel
Trail. They follow a route established by prehistoric people for two key reasons:
water and access. Water emerges from
springs at Indian Garden, and a fault creates a break in the cliffs, providing access to the springs.
