In the remote landscapes of Northeastern Arizona, international and local artists alike have come together for an ambitious endeavor dubbed, “The Painted Desert Project”. Organized by AZ-based Jetsonorama and Yote, it aims to put the spotlight on a region and people too often overlooked and misunderstood. By painting murals on food stands and dilapidated structures around the reservation, the farthest of which span 125 miles, they hope the millions of tourists visiting the Grand Canyon each year will be encouraged to stop and enjoy what Navajo culture has to offer. Artists involved in the project include Jetsonorama, Yote, Thomas “Breeze”, Tom Greyeyes, Overunder, Doodles, Gaia, Labrona, ROA, JB Snyder, and more.
