WEST GLACIER, MT. – Artists are encouraged to apply for the 2016 Artist-in-Residence Program at Glacier National Park.
The Glacier National Park Artist-in-Residence program offers professional artists focused time to creatively explore the natural and cultural resources of this astounding landscape. It also allows artists the opportunity to share their work with an international audience through educational programs and exhibits.
Each session of the Artist-in-Residence program offers the artist four weeks of uninterrupted time to pursue their artistic discipline. It also provides the artist with a furnished house located in the park. In celebration of the 2016 National Park Service Centennial the Glacier Artist-in-Residence program is seeking professional artists whose work reflects upon the past 100 years and/or looks forward to the future of our national parks.
The artist is required to present several public programs during their residency. The programs must be related to their experience as the artist-in-residence and can be demonstrations, talks, exploratory walks, or performances. Digital images of selected work produced as a part of the residency may be used in park publications, websites and presentations for education and outreach.
Artists of all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applications are available online at https://www.callforentry.org. The deadline to apply is January 31, 2016. For more information contact the park at 406-888-7851.
