Badlands National Park AiR

July 25, 2012


Open to all professional artists. Writers, composers and all visual and performing artists are invited to interpret this wind-swept environment through their work. The program provides time for artists to get away from everyday responsibilities to focus on their surroundings and their medium.


The park offers an apartment located in small housing complex at park headquarters at no cost to the artist. The residency lasts for a minimum of four weeks and a maximum of six weeks. Additionally, the park provides a reimbursement for expenses not to exceed $300.  Expenses reimbursed include supplies for school programs, travel, or meals. All expenses incurred above $300 are the responsibility of the artist. Several artists have been successful in seeking donations of supplies and materials from businesses or museums in their home communities prior to coming to Badlands for their residency, using the reimbursement as matching funds.


Residencies are available only between March 15 and May 15 or September 15 through November 15 of each year, due to lack of housing availability during the summer months.

Deadline for Fall Residency (Available between September 15 and November 15): June 15 Deadline for Spring Residency (Available between March 15 and May 15): December 15 Applications must be postmarked by the deadline. If the deadline falls on a Sunday or federal holiday, the deadline is extended to the next business day.
