Zion National Park is turning 100 in 2009. As a part of the celebration, Zion Natural History Association, in partnership with Zion National Park, the St. George Art Museum, and the St. George Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, will be hosting an exhibit of entitled, “Zion National Park: A Century of Sanctuary.”

The Zion National Park centennial exhibit will premiere at the St. George Art Museum and feature three components: a historic exhibit in the Main Gallery, a juried exhibit in the Mezzanine Gallery of recently completed paintings, and a contemporary installation about Zion in the Legacy Gallery. The former will feature photographs and paintings covering the early years. The second component will be a juried (by Peter Hassrick) exhibit featuring the finest recent paintings of Zion National Park (see prospectus).

The Zion National Park centennial exhibit will be on view at the St. George Art Museum from August 25, 2008 to January 24, 2009. The historic works and installation will not travel while juried exhibit may travel to other venues in 2009.

In order to create the best possible examination from past to present of Zion National Park in Art, we inquire if your collection or other collections that you know of contains images of Zion. You may send a list to the St. George Art Museum at 47 East 200 North in St. George, UT 84770 address or via e-mail to Deborah Reeder (deborah.reeder@sgcity.org) at the St. George Art Museum.

The timeline is to find and select the images by January 2008, as well as to finalize the negotiations and the details of transportation, handling, and security required in order to borrow the pieces.
