Pictured: Close to Home … Our Own Spectacular National Parks, a juried, all media exhibit at the St. George Art Museum features what Utah tourism marketers have dubbed “the Mighty 5.” Zion, Bryce Canyon, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands and Arches National Parks are considered the state’s top national parks, because they draw millions of visitors from around the world to enjoy the spectacular scenery, slot canyons, hoodoos, hiking, biking, rafting, exploring, stargazing … and a few of those visitors even schedule the opportunity to capture the amazing views with paint and canvass.
Here in Southern Utah we are particularly proud of these parks, two of which are not only “Close to Home,” but Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks are right here in our own backyard.
We encourage you to drive the 50 miles from downtown St. George to view Zion National Park for yourself. Bryce Canyon is a little further north, but definitely worth the trip.
After your trip to one or all of these spectacular national treasures, stop by the St. George Art Museum where artistic depictions in a variety of mediums are available for you to relive your memories.
The museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. at 47 E. 200 North. There is a small admission fee, but your payment will help the museum continue toward their goal to purchase art for their permanent collection.
