Artist in Residence
Pinnacles launched its Artist In Residence program in the Fall of 2008. This program immerses artists in the serenity and tranquility of a park wilderness setting. Far away from the lights, sounds and distractions of city life, artists can find inspiration in the solitude and the surroundings of the park.
Most residencies last about two weeks, with the artist expected to produce a few pieces, depending on the medium. Artists also interact with the public, often providing talks about their passion for art and their experience at the park. This program will ultimately involve many art councils, guilds and galleries in the process of selecting the artists and providing locations for displaying their work. We hope to create a solid base of artistic stewards that help the park through their artistic endeavors.
