Call Type: Residencies
City: Denali National Park
Entry Deadline: 9/30/18
Denali is seeking a diverse suite of voices to help share the unique story and important messages of Denali through art. This year we are asking applicants to focus on the theme “Staying Safe with Wildlife.” Alaska Native artists and Artists working in sustainable, recycled or repurposed material (Visual Artists) are strongly encouraged to apply.
The Artist-in-Residence program is dedicated to exploring new ways for visitors to experience Denali. From hundreds of competitive applications each year, about a half-dozen accomplished artists, writers, and composers are invited by the park superintendent to spend ten days in Denali at their own expense the following winter or summer. Visits include a permit for limited access along the Denali Park Road and time alone at a historic ranger patrol cabin.
During their residency, each participant is required to lead a public outreach activity with visitors.
