Winter Harbor, Maine- The Artist-in-Residence (A-I-R) program at Acadia National Park, located in the Schoodic District in Winter Harbor, Maine, is now accepting applications for its June 2014 through May 2015 season. Acadia's A-I-R program offers professional writers, composers, and all visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their particular art form while surrounded by the inspiring landscape of the park. Throughout the year the park provides housing to participants for two to four week time periods. No additional stipend is available.
In return, participating artists are asked to donate a piece of their work, representative of their style and their stay, to the Schoodic Institute, Acadia's non-profit partner. Donations will be sold to fund the continuation of the A-I-R program at Acadia. Artists are also asked to participate in one public program per week of their residency, such as a demonstration, talk, exploratory hike, or performance. In the fall and early spring, artists may work with middle school children. Programs can be tailored to each artist's medium, interests, and experiences, and take only a few hours of the residency each week.
Applications are now being accepted online through the web address below. Applications must be received in full by December 16, 2013, for consideration for the June 2014 through May 2015 season. This deadline has been extended from the October one. Online applications: http://www.uevent.com/registration?code=PK0YN39GLW
