Arts in Acadia
Creating New Ways For Visitors to Experience Acadia
In exchange for a two-week residency 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. Details are available in the Program Description.
A comprehensive and permanent Online Catalog is now under development for artworks donated by Artists-in-Residence since the program began at Acadia in 1992.
The most recent open call for applications ended on Jan 15, 2018 with more than 190 received. The selection process has concluded, with availability inquires accepted by four visual artists, two writers, and one at-large program participant. A public announcement of those seven individuals is likely by mid May.
The next open call will be from Oct 1 through Dec 31, 2018. Most residencies from this call will occur between late August 2019 and early May 2020.
