Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Still Accepting Artist-in-Residence Apps

Do you want to spend two weeks creating art in the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument?

The Bureau of Land Management has announced that applications are still open for the annual Artist-in-Residence program. Applications must be submitted by this Thursday, February 29th.

The selected artist receives a one- to two-week residency at the monument in the month of June. Artists will create work while immersed in a beautiful environment and share their art with the public. All artists are encouraged to apply, and there is no preference given to any style or medium.

The Artist-in-Residency program is in its eighth year. It has translated the national monument's natural and cultural resources into images, objects and performances.

During their stay, the artist will share their experience and artistic vision in a public presentation. Following the residency, artists are asked to donate an original piece of artwork to which they will retain the rights.

One artist and one alternate will be selected based on entry materials, residency proposal, professionalism and creative vision.

Interested artists can learn more and find an application at the Artist-in-Residence website, which is "bit.ly/CSNMart," by e-mailing "jduwe@blm.gov" or by calling (541)-618-2320.
