Hi Folks, Here’s my latest collection of images from Glacier National Park.  I was in residence from August 18-Sept 15.  I explored both the east (Two Medicine) and the west (Lake McDonald and going to the sun) sides of the park.  I was not offered an official NPS residency but the applications from Glacier were all passed on to the Montana Preservation Alliance.  They hosted a 4 week residency in Montana (I chose Glacier NP).

Hespera Stones on the New England National Scenic Trail

Christopher Frost: Hespera Stones on the New England Trail

Exploring the role of art in the New England landscape, sculptor Christopher Frost’s Hespera Stones illuminate shaded paths along the New England National Scenic Trail (NET) in Skinner State Park in Hadley, Massachusetts. Each of the three solar-powered stones glows with a stanza of Emily Dickinson’s “The Mountains Stood In Haze.”

Frost’s previous work includes art in national and state parks in Massachusetts, including Boston National Historical Park, Bradley Palmer State Park and Maudslay State Park. In consultation with park and trail managers at the Appalachian Mountain Club, Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the National Park Service, Frost chose the scenic Holyoke Range as the site for the installation.

The project was funded by the Fund for the Arts, a restricted fund of the New England Foundation for the Arts, made possible by generous support from anonymous donors. One of the goals for the NET is to be a national model for using art in the interpretation of National Scenic Trails. The 215-mile, volunteer-maintained New England Trail was designated as a National Scenic Trail in Connecticut and Massachusetts in 2009.

New England Trail AIR–Barbara Bosworth: artist profile video

Photographer Barbara Bosworth talks about taking photographs of the New England National Scenic Trail as the first artist-in-residence for the trail. This project was financed in part by the National Park Service’s Connect Trails to Parks program, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the National Trails System in 2018. Her photographs were shown in the exhibition “To Be at the Farther Edge: Photographs along the New England Trail” fall 2013.
