Each year, a group of artists gather at Grand Canyon National Park for the Celebration of Art presented by Grand Canyon Conservancy. Artists paint “en plein air” at the South Rim for one week. The artwork is auctioned off online and sold at shop.grandcanyon.org. Proceeds from the event go toward a fund to establish a dedicated art venue and educational programming at Grand Canyon.
The 13th Annual Celebration of Art will be September 11, 2021 – January 17, 2022.
Celebration of Art (CoA) is a wonderful tradition at Grand Canyon National Park, providing a vibrant experience for visitors, a venue for artists inspired by the canyon, and a successful fundraiser to benefit a dedicated art venue and arts programming at the park. For this year’s event, we are welcoming back all of our 2020 artists.
Since 2009, CoA has invited participating artists to paint “en plein air” (outside on location) for a week at the Canyon. The works produced from the event will be available for purchase online and on display at historic Kolb Studio for a four-month sale and exhibition beginning September 19, 2021.
