GLEN CANYON NATIONAL RECREATION AREA — Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is accepting artist applications for three volunteer positions for its 2013 season.

The Artist-in-Park Program supports natural and cultural preservation in the National Park system. Participating artists spend four weeks working in the park contributing to the national conversation of preservation through their artistic medium.   

Applications must be received by Feb. 15, and applicants must be 18 years of age or older and are required to submit a complete application packet.

Artists are expected to work 120 hours, spread over a period of 30 consecutive calendar days. They also must give at least one public presentation, and within six months of completion of their time in the park, artists are required to donate to the park one piece of art they created during the program.

The park will furnish the artist with necessary supplies for their work up to a maximum of $250. All artists who successfully complete the program will receive a $200 honorarium from the Glen Canyon Natural History Association.

For more information, contact Cynthia Adams at 928-608-6405 or Cynthia_Adams@nps.gov, or visit www.nps.gov/glca/ supportyourpark/artist-in- park.htm.
