2007 Artist-in-Residence Sharon Hammer Baker
Sharon is from Findlay, Ohio.
During Sharon's residency she worked six days with the national lakeshore's Junior Rangers. She helped them develop poetry, using nature to inspire them.
Other days she visited many park areas. Drawing from those visits, she developed Dunescape, a Collection of Poems Written at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Afternoon Metallurgy is on display as part of the Artist-in-Residence collection on temporary exhibit at the Dorothy Buell Memorial Visitor Center.
Sharon taught Junior Rangers how to use art as an inspiration for poetry at the 56th annual Chesterton Women's Club Art Show at the Chesterton Art Center.
