Artist in Residence Program
The Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park (MBR) and the K2 Family Foundation (K2FF) are pleased to co-sponsor the Art and Conservation Stewardship Artist in Residence Program. Located at the park in Woodstock, Vermont, the program offers one artist each year the opportunity to work on a site-specific or site-inspired project consistent with both MBR's and K2FF's concerns with sustainability and creative attention to the natural world. Artists are in residence for two months, and are encouraged to develop outreach opportunities to engage park visitors. Stipends and funds for materials are available.
