Artists Sought for Artist-in-Residence Program
Contact: Wanda Moran, 207-288-8804
Applications for the 2007 Artist-in-Residence program at Acadia National Park will be accepted until January 5, 2007. This program offers professional writers, musicians, composers, and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their particular art form while being surrounded by the inspiring landscape of Acadia National Park.
The park will provide housing for selected participants for periods of two to four weeks in the spring, summer, or fall of 2007. Spring residencies will be on Mount Desert Island. Summer and fall residencies will be on Schoodic Peninsula. In return, each artist must agree to present one public program per week of their residency. Presentations may be in the form of a talk, demonstration, workshop or walk. Spring programs may be for either students or adults. Fall presentations will be for fifth through eighth grade students attending Acadia’s residential camp. Artists must also donate one piece of their work to Acadia within six months. The work will become part of a permanent collection of art that will be used in exhibits and for educational purposes to advance the concepts of protection, preservation and appreciation of wilderness and national parks.
Applications must be received by January 5, 2007, for consideration for the 2007 season. Notification will be made by March 1, 2007. A $25 non-refundable application fee is required.
