The White Mountain National Forest (WMNF) and Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire are pleased to announce the second year of the WMNF Artist-in-Residence program, which began as part of the Weeks Act Centennial. Interested artists in all media are invited to apply for the 2012 residency, a celebration of the connections between forest, landscape, and culture.
The program offers professional and emerging artists from around the country (visual and performing artists, craftspeople, writers, composers, eco artists and media artists) an opportunity to pursue their particular art form while being inspired by the surrounding forest and, on several occasions, sharing their work and their artistic process with members of the public. Deadline for applications is May 18; the artist selected will choose a period of at least three weeks between July and September to be in residence.
