Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area offers unique perspective on the history of human settlement in the American southwest, from petroglyphs dating from prehistory to present-day suburban sprawl.

The Red Rock Canyon Artist-in-Residence program aims to support artists whose work will advance our understanding and appreciation for these special places. Artists are prompted to consider the cultural history of this region and comment on the significance of Red Rock Canyon and other public lands sites within contemporary discourses about art and the environment.
