National Parks Artist-in-Residence Programs


Please consult the program website to confirm details, including applicable deadlines.

Program Purpose and Description: 
This site centralizes artist-in-residence programs at National Parks throughout the country, providing artists with opportunities to create works of art in varied natural and cultural settings. There are programs for visual artists, writers, musicians, and artists in other creative media. Programs vary, but residencies are typically 2 to 4 weeks in length and most include lodging. Often artists are invited to participate in park programs by sharing their art with the public.
Application Process: 
Students or alumni, as applicable, may apply directly to this program. Applicants are encouraged, however, to work with SF State's fellowship advisor well in advance of the program deadline to perfect their application essays and other materials.
