Mesa Verde National Park Artist-In-Residence Program

Mesa Verde National Park Artist-In-Residence Program

  1. About

Mesa Verde National Park is proud to announce the 2013 Artist-In-Residence (AIR) program.

This program offers professional writers, composers, and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their particular art form while being surrounded by the inspiring ancient architecture of the Ancestral Pueblo people and the sweeping natural landscape of the park.

The park provides a historic, rustic residence to selected participants for four, two-week periods:
May 5 through May 18
May 19 through June 1
September 1 through September 14
September 15 through September 28

All participants will be required to attend a short orientation session before being allowed to enter backcountry areas. Also, participants will be required to be a National Park Service “Volunteer-In-Park” (VIP) during their residency. No stipend is provided. Participants in the Artist-In-Residence program will find the cabin fully furnished including linens and kitchenware. In return, participating artists are asked to donate to the park an original piece of work from, and representative of, their residency in Mesa Verde National Park.

Entries for the 2013 program are accepted from October 1, 2012 through March 1, 2013. Notifications of finalists will be made by April 15, 2013.

For further information about this exciting program, please contact Frank Cope at Mesa Verde National Park.
