2014 Artist-in-Residence Program

The BLM Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program creates a structure to share the scenic beauty and unique stories of the BLM’s landscapes with the public through the world of art. The BLM Artist-in-Residence program provides artistic and educational opportunities that promote deeper understanding and dialogue about the natural, cultural, and historic resources on public lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management.
