Author Event with Kevin Jones and Layne Miller's Standing on the Walls of Time: Ancient Art of Utah's Cliffs and Canyons

This volume, featuring previously unpublished photographs of Utah’s magnificent rock art by long-time rock art researcher Layne Miller
and essays by former Utah state archaeologist Kevin Jones,
views rock art through a different lens. Miller’s photographs include many rare and relatively unknown panels and represent a lifetime of work by someone intimately familiar with the Colorado Plateau. The photos highlight the astonishing variety of rock art as well as the
variability within traditions and time periods. Jones’s essays
furnish general information about previous Colorado Plateau
cultures and shine a light on rock art as art. The book emphasizes
the exquisite artistry of these ancient works and their
capacity to reach through the ages to envelop and inspire readers.
