Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument announced Friday that applications are now being accepted for the 2024 Artist-in-Residence program, sponsored through a partnership with the Escalante Canyons Art Festival and Glen Canyon Conservancy.

Applications must be received by midnight, April 14. Together, sponsors will select one artist to live and work in and around Escalante, while serving as an ambassador for the Monument.

“By promoting a deeper connection to the natural, cultural, and historic Monument resources, the residency promotes awareness through the arts,” said Artist-in-Residence coordinator Allysia Angus. “Through our partnership with the Escalante Canyons Art Festival and Glen Canyon Conservancy, our goal is to provide a unique opportunity for one select artist to bond with the heart of the Monument and express that connection in a way that helps all Americans gain a deeper appreciation for the stewardship of public lands.”

Interested artists may find more information and application materials on this website. Application submissions should be forwarded to Allysia Angus at [email protected]. Notification regarding the 2024 Artist-in-Residence selection will occur by the end of April.
