If you enjoy canyon photography, prose, poems, and paintings, then make a beeline for an art exhibit that showcases the work of ten teenage artists who recently ran the Colorado River through Grand Canyon. This annual journey, entitled Grand Inspiration (GRIN), represents a collaboration between Grand Canyon National Park’s Environmental Education team, and the Grand Canyon Youth, a Flagstaff-based non-profit that has been turning youth on to the rivers of the Southwest for well over a decade.
The ten-day journey conducted under the tutelage of artist Sarah Hooker, photographer Stewart Aitchison, and ranger/educator Dorea Martin is well chronicled in an exhibit that will hang until the end of July in the lobby of the Park Headquarters. Don’t miss it, and be sure to bring the kids. Who knows? They may be inspired to become the next participants in this once-in-a-lifetime trip. Read more by following these links:
