As far as artists are concerned, being Zion's artist-in-residence is the best idea "America's Best Idea" ever had.

Talk about a dream job.

You can meet this year's Zion NP artist Kimberly Harris, see her work and ask her about her experience capturing the grandeur of Utah's crown jewel. Harris' art, interior design and architectural work are informed by her passion for the outdoors. She has exhibited in many Arizona galleries in a variety of mediums including glass and tile mosaic, welded murals and paint.

She speaks Sept. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Southern Utah University's Centrum Arena in Cedar City. Arts Hotline: 435-865-8800 or visit:
