National Park Service - Bighorn Canyon
Residencies to USA sculptors, composers, painters, musicians, writers, photographers, culinary and performing artists to create artistic work on a nature reserve in Wyoming. This program is intended to increase the public's appreciation for and understanding of national parks. Housing at the site is limited and artists in this program should be comfortable living and working in remote settings.
This residency will take place at Bighorn Canyon National Park in Lovell, Wyoming.
To ensure the Artist-in-Residence program helps to promote the fundamental ideas, concepts, and inherent meanings of Bighorn Canyon, it is important that the artists understand the park themes and that their work and programs reflect those themes.
The Artist must agree to present a minimum of one public program and must be willing to informally discuss their work with visitors at their work site. Opportunities for presentations and the type of presentations vary. Interpretive staff will work with artists to provide presentation opportunities that fit with the artists’ interests.
After they complete their residency, artists may donate one piece of original work to Bighorn Canyon. Artwork that can be displayed should be provided in display-ready format.
Artists will not be allowed to sell their artwork to the public during or after public presentations, but may be able to sell at the visitors centers through consignment. Sales for the consigned work will be split in the following ways: 60% to the artist, 20% to Bighorn Canyon AIR program, and 20% to Western National Park Association. Artists are encouraged to share their website and contact information during or after public presentations.
