ND state parks seeking Artist in Residency program applicants

InForum News Brief FSA

BISMARCK — The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department and the North Dakota Council on the Arts are partnering on an Artist in Residency program within the North Dakota state parks.

The program offers artists the opportunity to stay and work in unique environments where they'll have the opportunity to draw inspiration from a park, demonstrate their skills and assist park visitors of all ages in discovering their artistic side.

This year, three artists will be invited to stay one week at either Lake Metigoshe State Park from July 14-21, Fort Ransom State Park (August 4-11) or Fort Stevenson State Park (August 11-18) as a collaborative effort to incorporate arts into the educational programming presented by the North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department.

The program’s goal is to continue creating works of art that showcase, document and celebrate North Dakota State Parks, while providing opportunities for visitors to become stewards, with a deeper appreciation of artistic works inspired by the state parks.

Interested artists can obtain applications via www.parkrec.nd.gov/business/resources . Submit applications via email to aschimetz@nd.gov on or before Friday, April 19.
