The Alice T. Miner Museum is pleased to announce that former director/curator Amanda Palmer will be returning to the museum to share with us her campaign to encourage artists and people of all ages to find their park through art! She will give a presentation during which she will discuss her several artist residencies in the National Parks, reveal some of her many inspirations, and explore a few of her creative methods. Amanda’s artwork will be on exhibit for the following week and will be available for sale.

Amanda has completed artist’s residencies at Homestead National Monument in Nebraska and Bighorn Canyon National Recreation Area in Wyoming and Montana. She also has been awarded residencies at Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, Petrified Forest National Park, and Guadalupe Mountains National Park. She has been invited to give her Find Your Park Trough Art talk this fall at Zion National Park, where she will also teach a relief printing workshop.

In celebration of its 100th birthday, the National Park Service launched the Find Your Park movement to inspire all people to connect with, enjoy, and support America’s national parks. Find Your Park also encourages people to explore state parks, local parks, trails, museums, historic sites, and the many ways that they can connect with history and culture, enjoy nature, and make new discoveries.
