  • Over 90 people dropped in to create a postcard with resident artist Myranda Bair at the Red Rock Canyon visitor center on Sunday, May 11th! Thanks to everyone who joined us!

  • We are happy to have hosted two workshops with resident artist Maria Arango Diener on April 13 and 19, at the Red Rock Canyon NCA visitor center! Maria led participants through designing, carving, and printing with a wood block. All participants will have their designs incorporated into a larger wood block print (seen above in the lower left corner) that will be exhibited at the visitor center this summer. Thank you to everyone who contributed to the finished piece!

  • Maria Arango Diener, artist-in-residence at Red Rock Canyon, will be leading two workshops, on April 13 and 19, which will guide participants from concept through the creation of a carved wood-block print. This is an unprecedented opportunity to work alongside an internationally-recognized artist to learn a unique skill and create artwork based on your experience of our Mojave Desert. Participants who attend these workshops will also see their artwork featured in an exhibition for the Artist-in-Residence program, which will be hosted in the visitor center from July through August. For more information or to register, please call (702) 515-5367.
