Alaska State Parks is seeking applications for its third annual artist in residence program.
The program is expanding to three sites this year. In addition to the Ernest Gruening Cabin in Juneau, Alaska artists now can apply for a residency at Kachemak Bay State Park near Homer, and Butterfly Lake Host Cabin in the Mat-Su’s Nancy Lake State Recreation Area.
The program is open to artists in all types of media, from writers and photographers, to painters and fiber artists.
Artists selected for the program stay at the site for up to two weeks. They are asked to donate an original art piece inspired by their time at the site, and host a community outreach event.
Artists must provide their own food and art supplies for their stay.
The deadline to submit an application is March 15th.
