Deadline: January 31st, 2018
From their call: Since 2008, the Artist in Wilderness program has sponsored one-week residencies each year, to allow a few select artists to make works inspired by the lands that Wilderness Workshop is working to protect. For 2018, two residencies are being offered, typically to be completed between June 1 and October 1. Exact dates are worked out with each artist after they have chosen to participate. Professional artists from all points on the globe are invited to apply before the January 31, 2018 deadline.
Chosen by a jury made up collectors and arts administrators, past participants have represented a variety of visual mediums. For 2018, we are selecting artists who create wearable jewelry, inspired by nature and/or by using natural materials.
Provisions: Wilderness Workshop will provide selected participants with housing, a hiking guide as required, a hiking guide as required, a $1500 stipend, and reimbursement for travel to/from Aspen for up to $1,000 ($400 for Colorado residents). Good health and endurance are essential. The artist will be responsible for his/her own food, equipment and materials, and will be expected to comply with all relevant USFS/BLM regulations.
Obligations: Each Artist in Wilderness will provide Wilderness Workshop with one original piece or series of pieces valued at $1500 or higher, inspired by the experience. These pieces of art will form a fundraising auction, taking place every few years for the benefit of Wilderness Workshop. Additionally, he/she shall give the organization reproduction rights and high-resolution digital images of at least five works, or small works for our auction resulting from the residency. Wilderness Workshop will use these images to promote the organization’s goals; to perpetuate the AIW program. All pieces/images must be delivered to Wilderness Workshop by the end of the year.
