The Grand Canyon National Park and the Grand Canyon Association wrapped up anothr successful Celebration of Art last week. The annual event included six days of art-related activities summed up with a three monthlong exhibition in Kolb Studio on the South Rim. The exhibit opened with a reception on Sept. 21. The event featured 26 artists from around the country who engage in a plein air competition and exhibition. Each artist brought a completed studio piece with them and then created more artwork on the South Rim, North Rim, at Phantom Ranch and at Indian Garden during the "Plein Air at the Canyon" and Quick Draw events that took place in the historic district of Grand Canyon Village. The proceeds from this event support the construction of an art venue at the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This permanent home will ensure that future generations of park visitors will be able to view the stunning art collection in the Grand Canyon National Park Museum and Grand Canyon.
