Wallace Lee's Legacy of National Parks Art
July 22, 2006 through October 14, 2006
The St. George Art Museum presents the Arts for the Parks exhibit in the Main and Mezzanine Galleries and Wallace Lee’s Park Legacy in the Legacy Gallery.
National Parks are an American invention, and we are pleased once again to host a blockbuster exhibit in St. George.
The Arts for the Parks competition was created in 1986 by the National Park Academy of the Arts, in cooperation with the National Park Foundation. The program is designed to celebrate representational artists, enhance public awareness of the National Parks, and to contribute to programs benefiting the National Park System as well as the public.
Each year jurors review over 2000 entries of artwork that depict areas governed by the National Park Service. One hundred artworks are selected to travel throughout the Nation including for the first time ever, the City of St. George Art Museum, and catalog of this exhibit is available for purchase in the Museum Store.
So go on a trip and bring your friends and family to visit a wide variety of the wonderful wonders of our nation, as well as paintings by Wallace Lee who for many years exhibited paintings in the Arts for the Parks show. Through the kindness of Joan Lee and the acquisition fund of the St. George Art Museum, we will feature art that is both on loan and acquired, as well as generous gifts of Wallace and Joan Lee.
The interactive Family Discovery Center and the new Adult Study Center will be educational additions to these exhibits, along with other media features.
