The Experience

August News: Kayenta Arts Foundation

August 8 in Events, Kayenta Blog by admin No Comments

We have progressed from ground breaking ceremony to ground clearing for our new Kayenta Center for the Arts. See the picture below, or come see for yourself while strolling thru the Coyote Gulch Art Villlage.

Ground Clearing

How exciting for our entire southern Utah community to witness the Arts Center become a reality. 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.

Countdown to the 2013 Art in Kayenta Festival, October 11,12&13, Friday thru Sunday, 10am to 5pm daily!  Now just two months away!  Find us on Facebook at “ArtInKayentaFestival”, or visit our newly launched website www.artinkayenta.org

There are many ways you can get involved and be a part of this festive event, and we would welcome your help.  Some of these include:

– You and/or your business can become a sponsor (www.kayentaartsfoundation.org).

– You can volunteer (contact Judy Terrell, judy@kayenta.net).

– You can spread the word and promote our festival to your friends and family.

– You can host an artist in your home.  Housing will be a real challenge during this time, since St. George rooms are pricey and already booked for Senior Games athletes and families. And hosting could potentially involve a perk from the artist! (contact Susan Jager, susan@kayenta.net).

Directors work diligently to bring a variety of visual and performing arts to the greater southern Utah area.  Announcements for these events are made in the Kayenta Connection and on the KAF website www.kayentaartsfoundation.org and via KAF’s e-mail list. If you would like to be added to this 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

Be a Part of the Art.  KAF Wants You.  Yet another great way to get involved is to become a KAF Board Member.  Every individual has their own unique talents and strengths to bring to the table, and therefore we invite you to submit your name to our Board Chair, Judith Kapuscinski, at judithk@kayentaartsfoundation.org

Kayenta Arts Foundation

Progress continues for our new Kayenta Center for the Arts. Lots of behind-the-scenes planning activity just ahead of actual excavation. We will continue to update you on progress, and of course you can witness for yourself what’s happening in that curious little corner of the Coyote Gulch Art Villlage that will soon become our indoor facility for all of the Southern Utah area to enjoy. Your generous contributions have carried us this far, 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.

2013 Art in Kayenta Festival commemorative posters are now on sale for $10 at the shops in the Coyote Gulch Art Village. Be sure to mark this date on your calendars, October 11 – 13, Friday thru Sunday, same weekend as the Huntsman Senior Games.

There are many ways you can get involved and be a part of this festive event.  These include:

– You and/or your business can become a sponsor (www.kayentaartsfoundation.org).

– You can volunteer (details coming soon).

– You can spread the word and promote our festival to your friends and family.

– You can host an artist in your home.  Housing will be a real challenge during this time, since St. George rooms are pricey and already booked for Senior Games athletes and families. And hosting could potentially involve a perk from the artist! (contact susan@kayenta.net).

How can I help?(you asked!)

St. George hotel rooms are booked due to the Huntsman Games.  If you have a lonely and lovely casita or guest bedroom, and would like to extend some of our famous Kayenta Hospitality to particiating artists, please contact Susan Jager at: susan_jager@yahoo.com.

The festival couldn’t happen without the great efforts of our volunteers.  Immediate volunteer opportunities exist to distribute Art In Kayenta posters and cards throughout the area. In addition, we need help organizing festival information and posting Art In Kayenta information on online Event Calendars (requires Excel experience and can be done in the calm, cool quiet of your own home).

As October approaches, we’ll also need helpful hands on site before, during and after the festival.

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."
