Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is pleased to announce world-renowned painter Ulrike Arnold and international artist Victor Van Keuren will join its Artist-in-Residence program October 7 to 19. The park invites the public to a grand unveiling of a four-dimensional exhibition of the artists' work on Saturday, October 19 at Carl Hayden Visitor Center (10 a.m. to 2 p.m.). The Glen Canyon exhibition will be on display at Carl Hayden Visitor Center through December. The Carl Hayden Visitor Center is located near Page, Arizona on State Highway 89.

Ulrike Arnold is a world-renowned painter who has painted on and displayed her work on six of the seven continents. Her life and work were recently the focus of the documentary film, 'Dialogue Earth' which is being shown in multiple venues in Arizona, Utah, Germany and Bavaria. Victor Van Keuren is a photographer who also works around the world shooting black and white, color, and three-dimensional imagery. Amangiri Resort commissioned Ulrike to provide art for the resort. Hyatt Place Hotel in Page, Arizona has examples from both artists.

According to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area Superintendent William Shott, 'the Artist-in-Residence program is established in National Park Service sites to inspire artists to create and share art that motivates and encourages visitation and exploration, while building awareness and developing stewardship of these stunning public lands. We're looking forward to having these world renowned artists showcase our beautiful park.'
