April 29 - August 20, 2016
Inspired by the centennial anniversary of the U.S. National Park Service in 2016, this exhibition provides another way for the community to celebrate these remarkable outdoor spaces, explore the history of the parks, and pay homage to these beautiful lands.
This exhibition celebrates the dynamic relationship between artists and National Park sites. For over a century, these iconic landscapes have inspired artists to create images that established the identities of the Parks in the minds of the public, captured history, and fueled endless artistic pursuit.
Capturing the Canyons: Artists in the National Parks is shown in conjunction with the centennial anniversary of the U.S. National Parks Service. The exhibition features artworks from a wide variety of artists focusing on National Parks in Utah and surrounding states: Arches, Bryce Canyon, Canyonlands, Capitol Reef, Zion, Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, and Yosemite.
