Porkies artist-in-residence program applications now available

LANSING, MI— The Department of Natural Resources is looking for artists interested in a residency in the Porcupine Mountains.

Applications are now being accepted for the artist-in-residency program for 2024 spring, summer, and fall and winter 2025.

The program offers writers, composers, and all visual and performing artists an opportunity to experience the natural beauty of the Porkies and to express it through their art form. Artists will stay in a rustic cabin on the Little Union River for at least two weeks. They must donate an original, finished piece of art inspired by their stay.

Applications must be received by February 14th. More information is at www.porkies.org/artist-in-residence.
