Shenandoah National Park debuts artist-in-residence program for 2014

shen national parkNational parks have served as a source of inspiration to countless artists during the last century.  This year, Shenandoah National Park joins the service to debut our first Artist-in-Residence program.  One selected artist will have the opportunity to live, work, and contemplate the wonders of Shenandoah National Park.  The residency will take place during a two-week period in the month of September 2014.

Shenandoah National Park’s Artist-in-Residence program invites visual artists (drawing, painting, and photography) to apply for this year’s residency program.  This year marks the 50th Anniversary of the Wilderness Act and in celebration of Shenandoah’s own unique Wilderness, the 2014 residency will reflect Wilderness inspired work.  Artwork completed under the program will serve to deepen the understanding and appreciation of Shenandoah National Park through the vision of the selected artist.

You can obtain program information and the application online from our park website at http://www.nps.gov/shen/supportyourpark/artist-in-residence.htm.

Augusta Free Press content is available for free, as it has been since 2002, save for a disastrous one-month experiment at putting some content behind a pay wall back in 2009. (We won’t ever try that again. Almost killed us!) That said, it’s free to read, but it still costs us money to produce. The site is updated several times a day, every day, 365 days a year, 366 days on the leap year. (Stuff still happens on Christmas Day, is what we’re saying there.) AFP does well in drawing advertisers, but who couldn’t use an additional source of revenue? From time to time, readers ask us how they can support us, and we usually say, keep reading. Now we’re saying, you can drop us a few bucks, if you’re so inclined.
