Artist in Wilderness Residency

November 6, 2016


For 2017 we are asking for artists who work in mixed mediums, specifically to be hung/usually framed. The artist may choose watercolor, oil, acrylic, collage; using texture, light and movement as guidelines.


Since 2008, the Artist in Wilderness program has sponsored one-week residencies each year, to allow a few select artists to make works inspired by the lands that Wilderness Workshop is working to protect (please visit:

For 2017, four residencies are being offered, typically to be completed between June 1 and October 1. Exact dates are worked out with each artist after they have chosen to participate. Professional artists from all points on the globe are invited to apply

Wilderness Workshop will provide selected participants with housing, a hiking guide as required, a $1500 stipend, and reimbursement for travel to/from Aspen for up to $1,000 ($400 for Colorado residents). Good health and endurance are essential. The artist will be responsible for his/her own food, equipment and materials, and will be expected to comply with all relevant USFS/BLM regulations.
