An art show, "100 Years of National Parks In Utah," will be displayed at Edge of the Cedars State Park and Museum, in Blanding Utah, with an opening day reception on September 27th.
The show is the result of a painting competition in celebration of centennial of Natural Bridges National Monument, the first National Park established in Utah. The competition took place over Labor Day Weekend, and required on-scene painting at Natural Bridges and Hovenweep National Mouments and Canyonlands and Arches National Park. The entries were judged by Donna Poulton Ph.D., a Curator at the Utah Museum of Fine Art and expert on Red Rock Country art.
An Opening Day reception on Saturday September 27th will be held from 12:00 noon to 4:00 pm, with refreshments served. The date coincides with Utah's "Free State Parks Day" and "National Public Lands Day," the annual date when no entrance fees are charged at State and National Parks.
The art show will later be moved to the Museum of Moab, to run there from November 4th to December 14th.
