Call Type: Residencies
Fee: $25.00 (Acadia National Park Artist in Residence Open Call for 2019)
Entry Deadline: 12/31/18
With more than 3.5 million visits a year, Acadia National Park in Bar Harbor, Maine is among the busiest and most-beloved sites in the National Park Service. Since 1993, Acadia’s Artist-in-Residence program has been dedicated to creativing new ways for visitors to experience the park through the arts.
In exchange for a two-week immersive experience, artists lead one outreach activity with the public and donate within one year one work of art that depicts a fresh and innovative new perspective of the park for visitors that’s drawn from their own experience.
Artists travel to and take part in the program at their own expense. A required application fee of $25 directly benefits program operational costs, such as participant housing, supplies for public display spaces, and staffing assistance with public outreach activities.
