Next Year’s Artist in Residence
The Artist in Residence program’s purpose is to inspire artists from around the world to take on new creative ideas and express their lived experiences of the canyon. Our 2022 artists to seek inspiration at Grand Canyon National Park are:
- Photographer and painter, Daniele Genadry (winter resident)
- Experimental artist, Elijah Jamal Asani (summer resident)
- Sculptor, Leah Aegerter (fall resident)
We will be sharing updates and details with you during their individual residencies. To learn more about the program and past residents, visit https://www.grandcanyon.org/our-work/artist-in-residence/.
