A new residency program

tallgrassThe 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.

featherThis 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
