Denali National Park and Preserve is seeking applications from visual artists and writers for the 2014 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 and seek inspiration from the park. Many of the works created by previous artists-in-residence are displayed in the Denali Visitor Center and the Eielson Visitor Center.

A link to the online application and more information about the program is available at http://www.nps.gov/dena/historyculture/arts-program.htm.Applications for the 2014 season must be submitted by September 30, 2013.Notification letters will be sent out by December 15, 2013.

Selected artists reside in the East Fork cabin, located at Mile 43 on the park road, for a ten day period between June and mid-September. In return for their residency, each artist donates a piece of artwork or written piece inspired by their time in the park to the park's collection. Artists also offer a public presentation at the end of their residency.

The Artist-in-Residence program is a national program. Artists have played a significant role in raising public awareness of the natural wonders preserved within the National Park System and the need for their protection since the creation of Yellowstone, the first national park. This is the 13th year of Denali's program.
