Congratulations to the four participants selected for the 2022 Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program at Capitol Reef National Park.

During each artist’s time at the park they will be producing work and offering free programs to the public. Program details will be posted on the park’s website and Facebook page. Work from previous artists can be found on the park website and select pieces are on display in the visitor center theater. Visit the webpage to learn more about each of the past and upcoming artists and the program at https://www.nps.gov/care/getinvolved/artist-in-residence.htm.
“Art has been an important means of communicating the unique beauty and history of our nation's public lands and national parks, starting in the late 19th century. We're pleased to continue the 6th year of this program in Capitol Reef National Park in collaboration with the Capitol Reef Natural History Association and The Entrada Institute. Please join us in experiencing this park through the eyes and ears of this year's talented artists”, says park superintendent Sue Fritzke. The selected artists receive rent-free use of a furnished park house and a $500 honorarium from The Entrada Institute to assist with travel and supply expenses.
