American Indian Guest Artists Program in Grand Teton National Park
Contact: Public Affairs Office, 307.739.3431
Each year, Grand Teton National Park sponsors a program for visiting American Indian artists at the Colter Bay Visitor Center. For the past 37 years, artists from diverse tribes have demonstrated their traditional and contemporary art forms, providing visitors a chance to gain a greater appreciation and understanding of American Indian art and culture.
" I encourage local residents and visitors to stop and take a peek at the new look of the visitor center and enjoy watching the guest artists as they demonstrate their time-honored skills in creating traditional and contemporary pieces of art," said Mary Gibson Scott, superintendent of Grand Teton National Park and the John D. Rockefeller, Jr. Memorial Parkway.
