Officials with the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument are accepting applications for its summer Artist-in-Residence program. Selected artists receive a one to two-week residency at CSNM during early summer. Artists will create while immersed in a beautiful environment, and share their works with the public. All artists are encouraged to apply, and there is no preference given to any particular style or medium.
“Each year we celebrate new perspectives,” said Joel Brumm, Assistant Monument Manager. “Artists have a unique viewpoint on these special areas, and they provide a fascinating window into our relationship with public lands.”
The Artist-in-Residence program is in its sixth year and has translated the monument’s natural and cultural resources into images, objects and performances.
“These artists have brought enjoyment to others and forged a deeper understanding of our nation’s treasured places,” said Brumm.
During their stay, artists share their vision in one public presentation. Following their residency, artists donate at least one digital image of their completed artwork to CSNM. CSNM holds a publishing copyright to donated digital imagery for promotional use to advance the residency program. The artist retains a non-exclusive use copyright.
One artist and one alternate will be selected based on the following criteria: entry materials, residency proposal, professionalism, and creative vision.
Interested artists can learn more information and an application at the Artist-in-Residence website (https://www.blm.gov/get-involved/artist-in-residence/air-sites/cascade-siskiyou), by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by calling CSNM at (541) 618-2256. Detailed instructions are on the entry form. Applications must be postmarked by April 4, 2022. Application materials and sample artwork can also be submitted in a single email no larger than 15 mb to email@example.com.
