Steven Acerson

“Utah Rock Art”

   Steven Acerson is the current President of the Utah Rock Art Research Association (URARA). A native born Utahn, he grew up in the Henry Mountains of the San Rafael Swell, exploring the canyons of this wild and beautiful land and developing a love of the rock art so abundant in Utah.

    While pursuing outdoor activities of hunting, whitewater rafting, and 4-wheeling, he was able to locate many rock art panels. Since his retirement five years ago, Steve has spent time returning to the canyons and revisiting the Utah sites with a new perspective. His exploration has expanded to other states, including Nevada. Steve is now involved in protecting and preserving rock art sites in Utah and educating the public of the importance of saving these ancient treasures.

    Steve will be sharing some of the many rock art images he has taken on his travels around Utah.
