Contact: Kris Fister, (907) 683-9583
Denali National Park and Preserve is seeking applications from visual artists and writers for the 2013 Artist-in-Residence Program. This program provides the opportunity for established artists and writers to use an historic roadside cabin as a base to explore the park and seek inspiration from it. Many of the works created by previous artists-in-residence are displayed in the Denali Visitor Center and the Eielson Visitor Center. "These interpretations of the park's landscape, wildlife, and cultural history, as portrayed through the skills of professional artists and writers, provide a superlative means to connect our visitors to the beauty and complexity of this great national treasure," said Superintendent Paul Anderson.
