Artist in Residence for the White Mountains

White Mountains National Recreation Area

In late March or early April the BLM hosts an artist for one week in the White Mountains National Recreation Area north of Fairbanks, Alaska. The BLM provides transportation between Fairbanks and a rustic cabin on the White Mountains trail system. You’ll find crisp, clean air, dazzling views, and with a little luck, shimmering northern lights against a star-studded sky.

Located just an hour outside of Fairbanks, the White Mountains National Recreation Area offers more than 240 miles of maintained winter trails and 12 public recreation cabins surrounded by jagged limestone mountains and cliffs, high mountain passes, and broad, rounded valleys.

Current Artist-in-Residence Opportunities

The BLM is currently not accepting applications for our winter/spring residency at this site. Please stay tuned for future opportunities and check out our summer 2020 residencies for the Pinnell Mountain National Recreation Trail and the Dalton Highway.
