Acadia National Park Artist-In-Residence Program

July 25, 2012

WHO:

The Artist-in-Residence Program at Acadia National Park offers professional writers, composers, and all visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their particular art form while surrounded by the inspiring landscape of the park.

WHAT:

In the spring and fall, the park provides housing to participants for two-week to four-week periods. No additional stipend is available.

In return, participating artists are asked to donate to the park collection a piece of work representative of their style and their stay. These creative works will be displayed on a rotating schedule or shared with the public through other appropriate means during the upcoming seasons. Artists are also asked to participate in one public program per week of their residency such as demonstrations, talks, exploratory hikes, or performances. In the fall, artists will be working with fifth and sixth grade students. Programs can be tailored to your medium, interests, and experiences, and only consume a few hours of your stay.

WHEN:

Applications for the program are accepted beginning October 1 and must be received by January 7 for consideration for the following season. Notification will be made by late March.
