Arts in Acadia
Creating New Ways For Visitors to Experience Acadia
Art and artists have played a key role in the history of Maine’s Down East Region, and the founding of Acadia National Park. The park now hosts two programs dedicated to creating new ways for visitors to experience Acadia through the arts.
In exchange for a two-week immersive experience in Acadia, artists lead one outreach presentation for the public, and donate within one year one work of art that depicts a fresh and innovative new perspective of the park for visitors that's drawn from their own experience.
An open call for applications for 2018 residencies ends on Mon Jan 15. A public announcement of selections is expected in March. Learn More
A comprehensive and permanent Online Catalog is now under development for artworks donated by Artists-in-Residence.
AcadiaNPS Arts Community
Beginning in November 2017, Acadia park staff hope to enter into discussions with local artists, gallery owners, volunteers, and subject matter experts about creating a new community approach for hosting arts enrichment experiences for Acadia's park visitors.
If you live and create in Maine's Down East region and want to take part in the formative discussions for this new program, please email park staff.
