19th century painters such as Thomas Moran stimulated the establishment of national parks by documenting the unbelievable landscapes of the American West. Through their work, today's artists help us make meaningful connections to our national parks. Visual and performing artists, writers, and composers are invited to live and work at Homestead National Monument of America.
2013 is the fifth year of Homestead's Artist-in-Residence program. This year we are seeking artists who want to partner with us during their residency to be inspired by the theme, "Year of the Homesteader." Residency periods can vary from 2 weeks to 3 months beginning in April through October 2013. Periods can be split. Proposed dates are to be identified as part of the submitted package.
The opportunity to live and work in Homestead National Monument of America benefits the selected professional artist, and those who will enjoy their artwork today and in the future. The Artist-in-Residence program at Homestead National Monument of America offers professional artists (fine art painters, sculptors, fine art photographers*, performers, writers, video/filmmakers, composers or other fine art media) the opportunity to spend a period of time working on their artwork and living in park housing.
