Artist in Residence
*Due to staffing issues, The Artist in Residence program is temporarily on hold until further notice. Pinnacles National Monument apologizes for any inconvenience.
Most residencies last about two weeks, with the artist expected to produce a few pieces, depending on the medium. Artists also interact with the public, often providing talks about their passion for art and their experience at the park. This program will ultimately involve many art councils, guilds and galleries in the process of selecting the artists and providing locations for displaying their work. We hope to create a solid base of artistic stewards that help the park through their artistic endeavors.
