SPRINGDALE, Utah – Does Zion National Park inspire you? We hope it does, and we want you to share your inspiration with others through our Artist in Residence Program!
Eligibility and applying
All visual (painters, photographers, sculptures, etc.), performing (drama, dance, music, composition, etc.) and literary artists can apply. International applications are not accepted at this time. If you are eligible, submit an online application before 11:59 p.m. on Monday, July 18.
Zion provides housing for a one month, highly independent residency. Resident artists will:
Present two public programs tailored to their medium, interest, experience, and audience.
Host periodic, open studio hours to interact with visitors.
Submit an original piece of work within six months of leaving Zion.
This art piece may be placed in the park's permanent museum or interpretive collections or, in partnership with the Zion National Park Forever Project, may be used to financially support the Artist in Residence Program.
Learn more about the selection process and see past artists’ work on Zion National Park’s website.
