Professional working artists of various disciplines, media and styles spend up to two weeks in a remote forest cabin on the Flathead National Forest to focus on their respective art. The program connects artists with wild lands like the Bob Marshall and Great Bear Wilderness Areas.
After completing the residency, artists select a format to share their talents and residency experience with the community and donate a representative piece of their art to the Artist-Wilderness-Connection Program. More than 25 artists have participated in the program since its start in 2004.
Applications and information about the program are available at www.hockadaymuseum.org under Artist Opportunities. Applications must be postmarked by February 28, 2013. Individuals and group collaborations are invited to apply.
