Two Spring Artists-In-Residence Announced
Contact: Charles Beall, (360) 854-7302
The North Cascades National Park Service Complex Artists-in-Residence program has expanded to Stehekin, enabling the park to host two artists this spring. The purpose of the three year old program is to invite artists to immerse themselves in the park and its people so that park visitors, staff, and neighbors may be provided with opportunities to explore the meanings and significance of park resources in new and unique ways through presentations, workshops, or performances. The artists also donate to the park a work of art representative of their residency.
