BADLANDS PARK RESIDENCY
The Artist in Residence program at Badlands National Park was founded in 1996 and is open to all professional artists. Writers, composers and all visual and performing artists are invited to interpret this wind-swept environment through their work. The program provides time for artists to get away from everyday responsibilities to focus on their surroundings and their medium.
The Artist Residency Program currently awards two residencies per year, allowing artists to benefit from studio space, ample time to create, and a supportive community. Artist Residents focus on community engagement, and are encouraged to explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community, and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work. The annual deadline for the Artist Residency Program is July 30, 2016.
