On Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 8 and 9, the Zion Nature Center will be transformed into an art gallery as more than 150 paintings produced during the week are hung for public exhibit and sale.
On Saturday, an exciting “Paint Out” event will be held on the lawn in front of the Zion Lodge, beneath Zion Canyon’s towers of stone. During the Paint Out visitors can purchase the amazing paintings produced by the invitational artists as they are being painted.
Event proceeds go to the Zion National Park Foundation to support important projects in the park, including the successful Zion Youth Education Initiative, making it possible for children from as far away as Las Vegas to visit the park and have a potentially life-changing educational experience.
Lyman Hafen, Executive Director of the Zion National Park Foundation, said, “Art has a very firm place in the history of Zion Canyon and in the story that led to it becoming a National Park. Today, artists, donors, sponsors and visitors continue that rich tradition, preserving the wonder that is Zion National Park for future generations, and enhancing the experience of everyone who comes here.”
