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.
