Cactus near Factory ButteThe mission of the Entrada Institute is to serve as an arts and educational center to further public understanding and appreciation of the arts, the natural, historical, and traditional cultural heritage of the high desert Colorado Plateau, and to foster community-based economic development in Wayne County, Utah and the surrounding region

The organization currently has three areas of emphasis:

Our Scholarship Program for Wayne County High provides much-needed financial support for graduating students who wish to pursue a college education—this includes our new Bernice Scholl Memorial Scholarship fund.

Our Saturday Sunset Series of readings, concerts, slideshows, lectures, festivals and other events enrich the cultural life of Wayne County while providing artists, humanities scholars and earth scientists to share their new and existing works.

Our Artist in Residence program helps support the creation of new works in the Wayne County environs, while providing a housing and meals stipend and an opportunity for the artist to describe his or her experience.

The Entrada Institute, Inc. is organized as a non-profit corporation.
