Artist in Residence
The purpose of Glacier National Park's Artist-in-Residence Program is to stimulate and foster the artistic exploration of this natural and cultural treasure and to share the artist's inspiration with the public through educational programs and exhibits. In this manner, contemporary artists can continue to explore the concepts first contemplated by earlier artists and inspire others through their artistic endeavors.
Artist-in-Residence Program Focus
Selected artists will receive lodging to allow them the opportunity to pursue their particular art form. This lodging is in a rustic cabin with no cell phone service or internet. It is an historic structure on the shores of Lake McDonald. No stipend is available. Artists must provide their own transportation and are responsible for the upkeep and cleaning of their lodging.
