Zion National Park is currently accepting applications for the 2011-2012 Artist-in-Residence Program. Applications for the program are available at www.nps.gov/zion/supportyourpark and will be accepted through July 22, 2011. The Artist-in-Residence Program provides selected artists with the opportunity to live in Zion Canyon for four weeks and devote their time and energy to developing works of art inspired by the park. As part of the residency, artists will present two public programs and donate, at the park's choosing, an original piece of artwork that represents their experience within the park.
