The creation of this program is a directive of the National Park Service’s Call to Action, Bighorn Canyon’s Long Range Interpretive Plan, and a way to creatively increase public awareness and to inspire the continued preservation of Bighorn Canyon’s resources. But more importantly, it is a time for artists to slow down, experience the canyon and make a lasting connection with the place. Artists in this program will be able to discover and interpret Bighorn Canyon through their own creative projects.
The Artist must agree to present a minimum of one public program and must be willing to informally discuss their work with visitors at their work site. Opportunities for presentations and the type of presentations vary. Interpretive staff will work with artists to provide presentation opportunities that fit with the artists’ interests.
