Denali Artist-in-Residence Program

Deadline: October 31, 2010 (RECEIVE)

Denali Artist-in-Residence Program
Alaska Geographic

Denali National Park, Alaska
2011 Program Season

Program Overview
The Denali Artist-In-Residence program was created in 2002 by the National Park Service and artist Kesler Woodward, who was the program’s first artist-in-residence. Since its inception, Kesler has served as the program’s advisor and on the selection committee.

The Artist-In-Residence program at Denali National Park began in 2001, and offers professional artists the opportunity to pursue their work amidst the natural splendors of Denali Park. The park currently provides the use of the historic East Fork Cabin for ten-day periods from June through August. Other accommodations may be available in the future. No stipend is provided.

Selection Process
The program is currently open only to visual artists. As there is already another program for professional photographers, this year’s program will not accept applications from artists working in the medium of photography. We expect to include a wide range of other types of media in future years.

A panel of artists and National Park Service personnel appointed by the Superintendent of Denali National Park reviews applications from professional artists annually. Selection is made on the basis of required entry materials, vision, new and innovative ways of responding to the park, and recognized accomplishment as demonstrated in those materials.

Calendar and Deadlines
Entries will be accepted with from May 15, 2010 through October 31, 2010. Applications submitted after the deadline will not be considered. Notification of the selections will be made by November 30, 2010.
