Kayenta Arts Foundation

How exciting for our entire southern Utah community to witness the Arts Center becoming a reality. All the excavation work for the site has been excavated, compacted and resurfaced, and we are now ready to set the forms and pour the foundation. We couldn’t have gone this far without you and your generous contributions.  But there is still much to be done, as we need to raise additional funds for the interior and contents of the building. If you’d like more information on the Arts Center and/or would like to contribute, please contact Garry Morris at kayentaartsfoundation@gmail.com.  You can also go to  www.kayentaartsfoundation.org, Kayenta Arts Foundation’s website, to view the promo video for the Center and review the Building Fund brochure.

Our 14th Annual Art in Kayenta Festival was a great success.  We had a great turnout and received comments like “best Festival ever!”  Hope you got to experience it for yourself, and thanks again to all our wonderful volunteers.  It was definitely a good decision to move it from February to October.

Directors work diligently to bring a variety of visual and performing arts to the greater southern Utah area.  Our next event is Santaland Diaries, held December 6 and 7.  A delightfully entertaining performance about an out-of-work New Yorker who takes a holiday job as a Macy’s elf.  For more information, go to www.kayentaartsfoundation.org.

Announcements for this and other events are made in the Kayenta Connection, the KAF website www.kayentaartsfoundation.org, and KAF’s email list.  If you would like to be added to our email list or if you have suggestions for an event or comments about a past event, please feel free to contact us at kayentaartsfoundation@gmail.org

Reviews

  • I have got to say how impressed I am by the concept. The area is beautiful and peaceful and the houses blend into the desert.

    Amy Chapman
  • Kayenta, I simply love it! This is the only place I stay when I go to St. George.  We just hang out, go for walks or take a dip in the beautiful pool....

    A Visitor
  • Famous artists of the past simply painted their surroundings. Van Gogh painted his sunflowers; Matissa painted his breakfast. I can paint Kayenta.

    Gary & Cheryl Collins
  • Kayenta is like living in a place where you are on vacation year round. This is our place to create family memories.

A scenic journey through Kayenta's history.

The Kayenta Community, in southern Utah's red rock country, is a tranquil enclave surrounded by protected lands. A 2,000 acre master planned community of fine homes, custom building sites and community amenities, is located 7 miles west of St. George, Utah. Kayenta is a unique departure from the norm, focused on moderate land use, moderate-sustainable growth, and an appreciation for our magnificent natural setting. Nearby, residents find adventure in the southwest's abundance of places to explore. Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks and Snow Canyon are within view. While just beyond the horizon are places like the Grand Canyon, Lake Powell and "Vegas."
