In September  2023, artists selected from a national call installed their work in the heart of Moab for a year. All works are up for consideration for the  public's permanent collection.

This years' volunteer selection committee, composed of local community members, merchants, artists and civic representatives chose an exciting new group of sculptures from a competitive field of submissions. Some of the artists are new to the show and some are back by popular demand, but All the sculptors have delivered their works in hopes that they'll be chosen by the public for the area's permanent collection. Moab ArTTrails purchases at least one sculpture per year to be donated to the public collection.

Since its inception in 2015, Moab ArTTrails has added over $100,000 of art to the public sphere with eleven sculptures acquired for the public permanent collection. The sixth year of this program is produced with the kind support of the Moab Arts Council, the Moab Arts & Recreation Center,  Grand Countythe City of Moab, RAP tax funds, and the grace of a whole host of totally wonderful artists, foundations, private contributors, arts lovers, civil servants, builders and friends.
