Application deadline for this amazing potential offer just got extended to November 7th, 2009, which gives you about a week to get your stuff prepared! For an application fee of just $35, you might have the opportunity to hop onto this and work in the desert for two separate sessions in 2010.

Oh yes, you could work here!

The Zion National Park Artist in Residence program offers professional artists the opportunity to live and work in the majestic desert environment of southern Utah for a period of one month.

This call applies to two different sessions, the first being February 6-March 6, 2010 and the second being April 1 – April 30, 2010.

The works completed under this program will contribute to the public understanding and appreciation of Zion National Park and should reflect the National Park Service’s mission to the preservation and protection of the park’s cultural and natural resources.

During the Residency period the artist will be expected to present two public programs, tailored to an individual’s medium, interest, and experience. At the conclusion of the Residency, participating artists will donate an original piece from their Residency in Zion National Park to be placed in the Park’s permanent collection.

Zion National Park will work in conjunction with faculty and staff at Southern Utah University in Cedar City, UT to select artists who will work in Zion for a four-week period in February 2010 and April 2010. Selected artists will be given a rent-free, furnished park house in the eastern section of the park.
