The goal of this residency program is to spread awareness of the prairie as an ecosystem worth protecting by inviting artists from diverse communities to contribute their voices to a conversation about place. Artists will be chosen from communities located in what has historically been typified as prairie, to participate in a series of 2-week long residency periods, culminating in a group exhibition in Fall 2016. Ideal applicants will have a strong body of work with a voice that reflects the artist’s own community; a dedication to place.

This how Marilyn Feather ( @feather05 ) describes her experience. “As an Artist-In-Residence at Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, I was able to immerse myself totally in my photography enjoying the solitude and open spaces of the Niobrara River Valley home to the globally famous 19.2 million-year-old bonebed in Carnegie and University Hills. My project entailed creating images to share and showcase what Agate is really like.” View it here
