The Southeast Utah Group of parks will begin accepting applications for the 2022 Community Artist in the Parks (CAIP) program on September 1, 2021.

Created in 2009, the CAIP program highlights the connection between local artists and the surrounding landscape, particularly Arches and Canyonlands national parks and Hovenweep and Natural Bridges national monuments.

The selected artist spends a minimum of 24 hours each month, April through October, creating original works of art in the participating parks and sharing inspiration and the creative process with visitors from around the world. The artist’s work will also be sold at participating parks’ cooperating association bookstores.

Community artists must be residents of Grand or San Juan counties in Utah, or Montezuma County in Colorado. For more program details and application information, visit

Interested artists may send questions and applications to Karen Garthwait at 435-719-2142 or via email to e-mail us. The deadline to submit applications is October 16, 2021.
