The application period for Zion National Park’s 2019 Artist-in-Residence program is now open! Applications will be accepted until July 31st. Artists of all mediums are encouraged to apply.

While living rent-free in a furnished historic home, Zion’s Artist-in-Residence is required to present two public programs and interact with park visitors through open studio hours or while creating artwork on the trails. At the end of their month-long residency, artists have six months to reflect back on their time here at which point the park’s superintendent ultimately decides which created piece he’d like to be donated to the park. Artists receive a $300 stipend to cover travel/supplies once their artwork has been received.

The Grotto House is in the heart of Zion Canyon and offers artists the wonderful opportunity to be inspired by the towering sandstone walls and gurgling Virgin River. The Grotto House has no phone or internet access so it’s a wonderful chance to reconnect with yourself and nature.
