The Artist in Residence program offers professional writers, composers, musicians, two and three-dimensional visual artists, photographers, filmmakers, and artisans of all types the opportunity to pursue their art in the premier wilderness setting of Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve.

In 2009, Resident Artist Robin Peterson participated in a patrol on the Noatak River and produced a sketchbook of the journey. To view this book as a slideshow, click on the image at left, and follow through the pages.

This web feature was funded in part by your national park entrance fees and made possible through a partnership with Alaska Geographic.
