Isle Royale Artist-in-Residence program looking for applicants

HOUGHTON, MI— Artists can apply next month for the Summer 2023 Isle Royale National Park Artist-in-Residence program.

A panel of artistic professionals and a park representative will select the finalists. The selection is based on artistic integrity, ability to reside in a wilderness environment, a willingness to donate a finished piece of artwork inspired by the island, and the artists' ability to relate and interpret the park through their medium.

The program is open to all art forms except those that would manipulate or disturb the park’s environment. The residency involves spending two to three weeks in a rustic cabin on the Lake Superior shoreline.

Applications will be accepted January 2nd through February 16th.

A link to the online application is here.
