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.

“We're pleased to continue the 7th year of this program in Capitol Reef National Park in collaboration with the Capitol Reef Natural History Association and The Entrada Institute. Art has been an important means of communicating the unique beauty and history of our nation's public lands and national parks, and we're looking forward to again seeing the park through the eyes and ears of this year's talented artists”, says 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.
