Artists are encouraged to apply for the 2020 Glacier National Park Artist-in-Residence Program. The application period will be until Jan. 6, 2020.

The Artist-in-Residence program offers artists focused time to creatively explore the park’s numerous and varied natural and cultural resources, and to share their work through educational programs.

Each session will run for four weeks during June, July, and September. The sessions offer artists uninterrupted time to pursue their artistic discipline and provide artists with a furnished house located in the park.

Those selected are required to present several public programs during their residency. The programs must be related to their experience as an artist-in-residence and can be demonstrations, workshops, talks, exploratory walks, or performances.

As part of Glacier’s 2020 Artist-in-Residence Program, Waterton Lakes National Park will also invite successful candidates to visit Canada for a day to connect the two parks as the world’s first International Peace Park (1932) and UNESCO World Heritage Site (1995). The trip to WLNP will consist of a tour of Waterton as well as giving a workshop or presentation similar to the ones given in Glacier National Park.

Digital images of selected work produced as a part of the residency may be used in park publications, websites and presentations for education and outreach.

Artists of all disciplines are encouraged to apply. Applications are available at https://www.callforentry.org. More information on the program can be found at https://www.nps.gov/glac/getinvolved/air.htm and biographies of last year’s Artists- in-Residence can be found on the park’s website. For more information contact the Volunteer Program Office at glac_volunteer_program@nps.gov, or 406-888-7851.
