About the Zion Artist-in-Residence Program 

Since the program’s inception, the park has hosted poets, dancers, musicians, painters, photographers, and other artists from across the United States. 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. 

Art pieces may be placed in the park’s permanent museum, interpretive collections or, in partnership with the Zion National Park Forever Project, may be used to financially support the Artist in Residence Program. 

This art helps visitors understand and appreciate Zion and reflects the National Park Service’s mission to conserve the park’s landscapes, plants, animals, and history.
