Voices of the Wilderness - Artist-in-Residency Program

painting on View Beach in Harriman Cove

The Voices of the Wilderness artist residency is a unique opportunity. It is modeled after traditional residencies in the national park... with a twist. Instead of staying at a remote wilderness cabin, our participating artists are paired with a wilderness ranger and actively engaged in stewardship projects, such as research, monitoring, and education. The idea is to give artists a sense of the stewardship behind America’s public lands, fostering an artistic exploration of these natural and cultural treasures.
