Watch a painting being created……
Artists have tried to capture the heart and soul of the Grand Canyon for hundreds of years through dance, songs, paintings, music, pottery, sculptures, poetry and prose. And the quest continues. A painting of the canyon by Bierstadt can bring tears to my eyes as a single moment of light and emotion is expressed on canvas with a stroke of a brush.
Visit the Grand Canyon Visitor Center in Tusayan and see a work of art being created by George Dorado Blanco in the court yard. The subject he has chosen is a mural of the Desert Tower, and he is in the process of translating his love and passion into an incredible work of art. It is a creation in the making. Just as each note becomes a song; each stich becomes a blanket; each stoke of the brush becomes part of the mural that George is creating.
