Overview of the Program

The residency program allows Artists to pursue their art in the Monument's contemplative setting. All types of artists may apply. At this time the monument is most in need of photographers and realist (non-abstract) painters and illustrators. This art will be used to show visitors what they might see and experience on the Monument. The art will be used in print and digital media. Due to federal regulations pertaining to land managed by the Monument, landscape art (Landart) is less likely to be approved but may still be proposed.

Due to the high heat of mid-summer, residencies are typically held in the spring and fall. The residency is about one week in length but this may be extended or shortened depending on a variety of factors such as weather and facility schedules.

Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument offers two Residencies, each a duration of one week. Each residency may only be fulfilled by one Artist. One will be held in April or May and one will be held in August or September. Artists may choose to apply for both or just one residency. These dates are subject to change based on the artist's ability and the availability of lodging.
