Bring together your creative side with nature!
The Red Rock Canyon Artist in Residence (AiR) program promotes the understanding and appreciation of Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area through the world of art. Artists reflect on scenic beauty, cultural history, and community engagement.
The Red Rock Canyon Artist in Residence program is made possible through a partnership between Southern Nevada Conservancy and the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management.
Introducing Our Artist-in-Residence for 2020!
Update: Due to public health concerns and recommended guidelines, the Artist-in-Residence spring program has been postponed in 2020. We will update this information when new residency dates are determined.
Congratulations to Ashton Ludden, Red Rock Canyon's Artist-in-Residence for Spring 2020!
Ashton is a printmaker, educator, and sign maker who lives & works in east Tennessee. Her hand-engraved prints initiate a conversation about our relationship with wildlife as we continue to become further removed from the natural world. Ashton's prints have been exhibited in galleries nationally and internationally, as well as at animal education and welfare conferences. She teaches printmaking workshops regionally and nationally and holds a MFA in Printmaking from the University of Tennessee and a BFA in Engraving Arts & Printmaking from Emporia State University.
More details about Ashton's community engagement program will be posted as soon as details are finalized.
