Artists are encourage to celebrate the season this September and October during the fall residency program at Crater Lake National Park. Applications are due on July 15 from artists interested in staying in historic park housing for two weeks and allowing themselves to be surround by breathtaking landscapes and the deep blue lake. Two artists will be chosen to interpret the beauty of the park through the creation of artistic pieces in their preferred media. The park's Artist-in-Residence program is unique among most residencies around the country in that it encourages both emerging and established artists to participate.
"We've designed a model that will allow artists from many different mediums to be inspired by the splendor of the park and share their work with the public:, said Linda Hilligoss, Education Coordinator of the Science & Learning Center and organizer of the program. From watercolor paintings to musical composition, biological illustration, writing, and photography, artists have demonstrated creative approached to appreciating the national park and cultural history.
The Crater Lake National Park Artist-in-Residence program exists thanks to strong collaboration and financial support from park partners such as the Friends of Crater Lake, the Crater Lake Natural History Association and the Crater Lake Trust.
