Celebration of Art

Our annual fundraiser to benefit a dedicated art venue at Grand Canyon National Park.

2016 Celebration of Art Terri Attridge

Celebration of Art (CoA) is a wonderful tradition at Grand Canyon National Park, providing a vibrant experience for visitors, a venue for artists inspired by the canyon, and a successful fundraiser to benefit a dedicated art venue at the park.

Founded in 2009, CoA invites participating artists to paint "en plein air" (outside on location) for a week at the South Rim of Grand Canyon. Artists are tasked with capturing the ever-changing colors and light as the sun moves across the intricate layers of the canyon. Paintings produced during this special event are shared with the public during a four-month sale and exhibition online and at Historic Kolb Studio.

2024 Dates: The exhibition and sale will take place September 15, 2024, through January 20, 2025.

For questions regarding the event, contact Kathy Duley at or (480) 277-0458.
