2018 Artist-in-Residence program at Fire Island National Seashore
Emerging and professional artists from all disciplines are encouraged to apply by February 16 to be considered for one of the four two-week residencies being offered. The Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program offers artists focused time to creatively explore Fire Island National Seashore’s natural and cultural features. Fire Island’s “dynamic landscapes, beach communities, and maritime heritage provide compelling subjects,” says Kathy Krause, Chief of Interpretation and Education. Artists live in the park while developing a body of work. Up to four residencies are awarded through a juried application process based on artistic merit and project proposal. Participating artists contribute to the park’s public outreach efforts by conducting presentations, workshops, and/or showcasing their work in an exhibition. Seventeen artists who work in visual art, sound art, literary art, and mixed media have participated in the Seashore’s program since its 2013 launch. For more information, visit www.nps.gov/fiis. To request a submission checklist and application, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
