Artist in Residence Program
For the 2015 season, the park is collaborating with Of Land & Local , an annual multidisciplinary, state-wide exhibition organized by Burlington City Arts (BCA) and designed to initiate a dialogue about issues surrounding the Vermont landscape. Of Land & Local 2015 will focus on supporting artists to make and exhibit new work through unique residency opportunities.
BCA is currently inviting proposals from artists to apply for this program. Proposals should be community minded and should provide visitors to the park with an opportunity to critically engage with contemporary artwork as it reflects on and exists within the Vermont landscape. The artistic process and/or product should attempt to offer viewers the chance to contemplate the significance and strength, as well as the vulnerability and fragility of our environment.
