BARRIER CANYON ROCK ART
“The Harvest Scene” in Canyonlands N.P.
Date: Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Time: 3:00 PM – 4:30 PM
Location: GSENM Visitor Center, 745 East US. Hwy 89, Kanab.
Description: Hidden in the Maze District of Canyonlands National Park is one of the largest and most complex of all barrier canyon style rock art sites, known as “The Harvest Scene.” Very difficult to access, the site is seldom seen by visitors. Dividing the panel into eight clusters, this presentation offers a close look at exquisite Native American artwork. D-Stretch imaging technology dramatically elucidates the ancient, ethereal figures, slowly fading from direct sunlight.
As it works to protect prehistoric rock art sites around the West, URARA offers opportunities in Utah to participate in preservation, site stewarding, documentation and monitoring.
