Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area

The Bureau of Land Management is pleased to announce the second Artist-in-Residence (AiR) program at Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area (ONA), sponsored through a partnership between Yaquina Head ONA, the Oregon Coast Council for the Arts, and Friends of Yaquina Lighthouses.

We are pleased to announce that Darryl Baird has been chosen as the 2023 Yaquina Head Outstanding Natural Area's Artist-in-Residence. Darryl's residency will start May 30, 2023 and will run approximately 3½ weeks.

Darryl's primary motivation with this residency is to "...continue to work as an artist and an instructor of image making and storytelling."

We look forward to discovering Yaquina Head through the lens of Darryl's camera and hope that you all will find time to join us.

National Conservation Lands, such as Yaquina Head ONA, are designated to conserve special features and provide exceptional opportunities for recreation and scientific research. The selected artist will be expected to work onsite to develop creative products that help promote public stewardship of the unique natural and cultural resources of Yaquina Head ONA.
