Zion National Park is pleased to announce the selection of Mark Graham as the Artist-in-Residence for the April 2010 session. A landscape painter, Graham recently moved to Utah from New York City, where he is an artist and educator at Brigham Young University. He has a profound interest in wilderness, in desert ecology, and in the role of art in fostering a sense of reverence for the natural world. Graham will provide a public presentation at the Zion Lodge Auditorium on April 17th at 9:00 pm.

The Artist-in-Residence Program invites professional artists to apply for a four-week residency in Zion National Park. While here, artists have the opportunity to pursue their particular art form while surrounded by the inspiring landscape of the park. Zion will begin accepting applications for the next residency session in June 2010.

The Artist-in-Residence Program is supported by Zion National Park, in partnership with Zion Natural History Association and Southern Utah University’s College of Performing and Visual Arts. Artists are selected by a jury made up of staff from Zion National Park, faculty from Southern Utah University’s College of Performing and Visual Arts, and staff from the Braithewaite Fine Arts Gallery. Selections are made based on the merit of an applicant’s work and how the work can advance the mission of Zion National Park and the National Park Service.
