Capitol Reef National Park's Artist-in-Residence Program
The Artist-in-Residence (AiR) Program at Capitol Reef National Park offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. “This residency program is an exciting progression of our relationship with the artist community, and will give visitors the chance to know Capitol Reef in a new and different way, through the eyes of an artist,” said former Capitol Reef National Park Superintendent Leah McGinnis who helped form the program in 2017.
In 2019 the park is offering one night sky photographer residency for 2-4 weeks. As an International Dark Sky Park, we are interested in engaging in art and culture with our dark skies.
The park also offers three artists a choice of residency of 2-4 weeks during the months of March thru October for visual and performing artists, writers and composers.
The selected artist will be given rent-free use of a furnished park house and will also receive a $500 contribution from The Entrada Institute to assist with travel and supply expenses.
This Artist-in-Residence program is supported by Capitol Reef National Park, in partnership with the Capitol Reef Natural History Association and The Entrada Institute.
