Celebration of Art 2020 Catalog
Grand Canyon Conservancy’s Celebration of Art is a wonderful tradition at Grand Canyon National Park, providing a venue for artists inspired by the canyon, and a successful fundraiser to benefit arts programming and an art venue at the South Rim. Art plays a critical role in the appreciation of our national parks, and this event helps to keep the artistic tradition part of the Grand Canyon experience. Since its inception in 2009, Celebration of Art has invited participating artists to paint “en plein air” (outside on location) for a week at Grand Canyon. Visitors have the opportunity to watch the artists paint along the South Rim as they interpret the ever-shifting light and shadow, amazing land-forms, and vibrant colors of this vast landscape. In addition, there are free artist demonstrations scheduled at various locations at the canyon during the week. Celebration of Art is a singular event. No studios, no special lighting, no photographs pinned to a concept wall—just an easel, an artist, and the Grand Canyon stretched out across the horizon as far as the eye can see.
