Each year, the Entrada Institute names an Artist-in-Residence. The 2016 recipient of this award is Rebecca Bailey of Monticello UT. She received this award for her nonfiction writing project titled “The Spirituality of Desert Women: Marie Ogden and the Home of Truth”. Bailey will be presenting the results of her work at a Sunset Series event during the 2017 season.

The Entrada Institute, a nonprofit organization from Torrey, Utah, has a twofold mission: to support artists, writers, humanities scholars, and earth and social scientists in their development of new works, and to promote understanding and appreciation of the natural, historical, and cultural heritage of the Colorado Plateau as well as local economic development.

Recent recipients of the Artist-in-Residence award have included a musician, composer, playwright, and multi-media developer. The next opportunity to apply for this award will be April 2017.
